This was GemPrincess's idea, but I thought I'd get it rolling with tips for France.  (One of the most important things for these sites are new breathalyzer laws (required on all cars and even motorcycles), fines for 130 euros for using a phone while driving, and info about radar cameras [don't be surprised if you rent a car and get a bill six months later -- they snap a photo of the registration, and the rental car company will forward the bill to you. They do usually post where they're used.) Then there is the always present priorité à droite (cars entering a roundabout or intersection from the right have priority).
