Speed cameras flash 34,000 drivers in the same place

In Denmark, the speed cameras – both the stationary ones and those on wheels – are such good business that they are on the Finance Act. In Germany, they are also shoveling in money.

There is nothing new in the fact that speed cameras are good business. But it is new that three speed cameras together hit over 34,000 motorists.

The cameras, which were set up in the German city of Würzburg last October, have flashed motorists in dog driving. A total of 34,606 motorists have thus been asked to contribute to the public finances in Germany.

This is written by the MainPost newspaper.

The fastest time was for a motorist who sped past one of the cameras at 172 km/h. The person had to drive 60 km/h.

According to the local authorities, however, the speed cameras are each worth their weight in gold. And it's not just because they get drivers to contribute millions of euros. The speed cameras also provide an insight into how new road safety campaigns can target those who speed too fast.

However, it is not always the case that the police are right when they use images from speed cameras. For example, a man was asked to pay a speeding ticket, even though he neither owns a car nor can drive at all. Read more about it here.

The otherwise heavily criticized section control on the Storebæltsbroen, which is the first of its kind in Denmark, also works so poorly that the police have not been able to use the images for anything. In other words, not a single motorist has been ticketed since the cameras were activated. Read more about it here .
