Drivers on the Champs-Elysees seem to delight in rushing at you as you attempt to cross the street. Be careful crossing here as the drivers are like demons!

Be quiet

If you are already going in Paris, you noticed certainly that the Parisian driver is often aggressive. Horn and coarseness: it is a practice here! Don't be surprised.

Parking...

If You will rent a car in Paris, be sure, that you can lift it from the ground, when you want to get it from the parking lot (see the picture). Parking density is really high in Paris. :-)
