A single speed camera earns DKK 56 million per year

Speed cameras are such a big asset for the Danish state that speed booths are in the Finance Act. In Belgium, the speed cameras are also doing well.

Have you ever thought about how much a single camera trap can shovel in a year?

The answer is – perhaps not so surprisingly – a lot of money. Crazy amount of money actually. A frighteningly good example can be found on the E19 motorway in Belgium.

Here there is a traffic light immediately before the ring road that surrounds the city of Antwerp. And although it has been there for several years, it is still a great deal for the Belgian treasury.

This is written by the Brussels Times newspaper.

In the course of 2022 alone, the one speed camera flashed so many motorists that, overall, it resulted in an income of 7.5 million euros directly in the state treasury.

Behind the almost astronomically high ticket amount are speed booths for 17,000 motorists. But the real number is probably even higher.

For drivers who have cards faster than 140 km/h past the speed camera, they have been contacted directly by the local police. Their cases therefore do not appear in the official statistics from the camera trap.

In the northern region of Belgium, Flanders alone, motorists were flashed 6.6 million times by 2022. This is more than a doubling in less than 10 years. In 2014, motorists were 'only' flashed 3.3 million times.

Here at home, both photo carts and fixed-mounted camera traps are also very popular. The so-called starling boxes.

More and newer photo vans have also meant that the police are now blitzing road users who would otherwise have gone free in the past. The photo vans have simply not been able to see either them or their choir. But the loophole is a thing of the past now. Read more about it here.
