Every day there are stalls for 70,000 kroner on the 'smart' motorway

Here at home it is completely new to check the average speed of motorists. But in England, the state is shoveling money into the same technology.

At home, it is currently being discussed whether the new speed control on the Storebæltsbroen, which keeps an eye on motorists' average speed, is legal at all.

This is not the case in England, where road traffic control has long monitored how hard drivers press the accelerator. Especially on the so-called 'smart motorways'.

This is written by The Sun.

This is where the British treasury shovels in money. Actually, the smart motorways should increase traffic safety through increased monitoring. But they have also become a goldmine of fast food stalls.

Among other things. because of the line control, which these days is the subject of heated debate here at home. On the 'M1' motorway alone, which is 311 kilometers long, a now four-year trial period has killed 22,000 motorists.

And that alone on a selected section of the motorway. Cameras have been set up here. Just as the permitted speed has been lowered from 70 to 60 miles per hour, you must not exceed 96.5 km/h on the stretch.

But there are many British drivers who do. In fact, stalls for 8,000 pounds are written every day on that very stretch.

This corresponds to just under 70,000 Danish kroner every single day. According to The Sun, 2.25 million pounds, equivalent to 19.6 million kroner, have been stolen from the treasury if all the stalls are paid.

Here at home, the Danish police hide somewhat 'better' than their British colleagues, at least when it comes to photo vans. And the treasury benefits from that. Read more about it here .
