In France tollway stops are called Péages. You can use these vantage points to get a ride very well because all the traffic of the autotroute passes through them at low speeds.
There are several ways hitchers normally ask for a ride:
- You can thumb immediately after the Péage;
- If you prefer a direct approach you can dash across the lanes one at a time until you're at a busy lane and stand next to the toll machine and talk to drivers when they stop to pay;
- You can wait before the Péage, just where the drivers choose their lane. There is mostly enough space for cars to pull over here.
