"With its area of 547,030 square km, France has 1,027,183 km of serviceable roadway. France is also a very popular tourist destination: people come to visit famous vineyards, ski resorts and of course Paris, one of the world's most beautiful and romantic cities."
— Official Euro Truck Simulator 2 Website

France (French: France) is a country first appearing in Euro Truck Simulator.

Although the whole of France appears on the map, only the eastern part is featured in the initial Euro Truck Simulator 2. The Vive la France DLC released in 2016 fills up most of the country.

Toll system Edit

While France is just like most other countries in Euro Truck Simulator, the sequel game – Euro Truck Simulator 2 – introduces toll booths on French Autoroutes, which are common in real-life France. The reason for extensive road-tolling in France is that the French government conceded the exploitation of most of the motorways to private companies, which in turn charges users to maintain the networks.

Accessible Cities Edit

The Port of Calais, Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux are featured in the original Euro Truck Simulator.

8 French cities (including Paris, Lyon and Calais proper) are featured in Euro Truck Simulator 2 base game, while the Vive la France DLC brings back Bordeaux along with 14 others. In total, 23 French cities are featured in ETS 2, making France the country with the highest number of accessible in-game cities.

Speed limits Edit

The speed limits for France in ETS2 are as follows. Speeds apply to both cars and trucks unless otherwise specified:

  • Highways: 90 km/h for trucks, 130 km/h for cars (reduced to 110 km/h in case of rain, 50 km/h if visibility is inferior to 50m).
  • Minor roads: 80 km/h for vehicles under 3,5 tons, 80 km/h for lorries. 70 km/h is enforced on narrow stretches and near junctions.
  • Cities and Towns: 50 km/h for all traffic. Small towns are often 30 km/h.
  • Tolls: Speeds decrease upon approach, from 70 km/h down to 30 km/h at the toll gates. The exit speed from the toll plaza is at the highway limit.
  • Other areas: Speeds are limited to 70 km/h when approaching or passing the cities of Lille and Reims, amongst other places. Border control areas are limited to 60 km/h around the vicinity of the crossing.
  • Most French cities, such as Roscoff, have radar speed signs which display the vehicle's speed as it passes by, pictured in the game, as well in the same way as in real life.

If you pass them under the limit, they display "MERCI" (Thanks). You will see a "PRUDENCE RALENTIR" (Caution Reduce Speed) message when you pass the sign over the limit.
