French ecotax camera gantry
This photo shows an ecotax  camera gantry, not an average speed camera gantry
The above map shows the principal arterial routes through France;
red
for toll motorways, blue for free motorways, and green for main trunk routes, which are mostly dual carriageways or divided highways – though this is not always the case. For detailed information on certain specific routes, see below.

Average speed cameras and ecotax cameras.

Average speed cameras - called radars tronçon -  were introduced in France in 2012, and they are appearing in many places. Don't look for a gantry; in most cases they are just mounted on posts on the roadside, like other speed cameras only slightly higher up.  Though mainly on motorways and major trunk routes, they can be found on minor roads too.  
  The large gantries spanning free motorways and major dual carriageway routes (photo right) are not speed cameras, but ecotax cameras solely for HGVs over 7.5 tonnes. For more about this, see HGVs in France page.
