One in five British motorists abroad have been stopped by the police on foreign roads.

Their crimes include driving on the wrong side of the road, speeding, using a mobile phone or using Sat Navs that detect speed cameras – they are illegal across much of Europe and fines can be as high as €1,500 (£1,389) in France and €2,834 (£2,634) in Italy.
