Now the police are hiding photo vans in a new way in Denmark

The police flash several hundreds of thousands of motorists on Danish roads every year. The stalls are on the Finance Act, and now the photo vans are in between the road workers on the motorway.

The police's hunt for motorists in the form of photo cars – the so-called automatic traffic control – is not just about the Finance Act.

Every year, law enforcement shovels an awful lot of millions of kroner into the state coffers in this way. Read more about it here .

And this week, one of the new photo vans that Copenhagen's Vestegns has at its disposal has been seen on the Holbæk motorway. However, it is not because they hide it very well.

And yet. Because the sun gray Ford Transit Custom can look like any other craftsman van. But be careful. That is not the case at all.

The police circle had wedged a photo van in the middle of the road work taking place on the Holbæk motorway in the inbound direction just after Roskildevej at the moment.

This is what writes.

And it's about looking out when you pass a photo van that is positioned that way. Since a change in the law in 2014, the police have had to double the fines when motorists honk too fast or otherwise break the traffic law during road work.

The police circle had said in advance that they would blitz motorists on that stretch. Therefore, the management is also pleased that most motorists stayed on the right side of the traffic law.

– We believe that it is gratifying that so many motorists respect the road workers and observe the posted speed.

– However, it causes frowns when we find that more than 50 motorists have to take a check test because they choose to take road safety seriously, says head of the traffic police, Police Commissioner Claus Stoltenberg.

In total, 166 of the 2,631 drivers who pass the photo van receive a greeting from the police. 30 of them stand in addition to the fine for a conditional disqualification.

However, the police are not always right. Not even if they roll out in photo vans to flash the Danish drivers.

A video proves how law enforcement made an embarrassing blunder that later meant they had to tear the speed booth down the middle. However, there was no apology. Read more about that case here .
