Re: Another speeding thread (58 kmph over, in France)

The French authorities can ban you from driving in France, but they cannot take away your Swiss license.
But if the Swiss authorities know that you've been speeding in a foreign country and you've been fast enough to warrant a license suspension according to the laws of both countries, you're license will most likely be suspended in Switzerland. Since going 58 kph over the limit will be classified as a severe violation you can expect a suspension of at least three months, even if you have an otherwise clean driving record.
Thanks a lot Mark. I understand that this forum is no substitute for a lawyer (or a judge, doctor, policeman, dentist etc), but your post/opinion addresses my actual question.

I guess I'll keep my fingers crossed and piggy bank full.
