I have been to st martin a couple of times before and rented a car both times, I am returning in july this year and am getting concerned about driving this year. I will be staying on Orient Beach and will drive to Grand Case a few nights to eat and a few other misc. trips. I will be drinking during the day until say 3 or 4pm and then driving to grand case around 7pm. I have heard that the french side is strict on drinking and driving laws. Does anyone know the actual law?
