Parking

Be aware in cannes where you park

Look out for kerbs corners with yellow

These guys will tow you away and at 130 euros and grief of car pounds

Make sure you are parked correctly

They laugh at you when they take your money

In cannes

I still had to pay

And definitely not a hazard or obstruction

As they said at they compound,welcome to France we need the money ha ha

Yes, most tourist do. But that statistic is reflecting the high number of Europeans who are driving their own car and are more familiar with international road signs, etc. Much of the issue is the rental car companies.
