    Don't take me wrong I'm a Francophile, but isn't this pretty amusing?

    Yep, only in France. Next step is to breathalize (sp?) under water.

    That is funny. I like the part where the police diver holds up a sign underwater.

    I don't speak French, but I can only imagine what's going on here... How about an explanation in English to confirm...

    Thanks,

    About the underwater cop. He asked the divers to write their name on the slate. Later the names/depths were checked against the diver's certificates (depth limits). They also did complete checks on the dive operators (safety procedures, licenses, ...)

    So France is the first nation with true PADI police. That is hilarious. I would love to know the ordinances that are being used to enforce that.

    Cool Re: Watch out! French police UW certification control!

    From what I understood the cops were checking the dive tour operators and making sure they were not putting their clients at risk by allowing them to dive beyond the limits of their certification.

    What would Jaques Costeau have been able to achieve if they had been that anal when he started out?

    I saw this on a T shirt in Europe recently

    EURO HEAVEN
    The cops are English
    The cooks are French
    The lovers are Italian and
    Its all organised by the Germans

    EURO HELL
    The cops are French
    The cooks are English
    The lovers are German and
    Its all organised by the Italians

    Cheers,

    Paua
