Speed traps on the Storebælt are so bad that everyone escapes speed bumps

Neither in December nor in January have the police been able to charge a single motorist for speeding across the Great Belt Bridge.

The public farce, not so public even, continues. Now it turns out that the image quality in the automatic speed control on the Great Belt Bridge is too poor.

In any case, the images are of such poor quality that the police have not been able to charge a single motorist for speeding across the bridge.

This is written by TV2 Fyn .

Neither in December last year nor in January 2024 have the police been able to use a single one of the 31 photos that Sund og Bælt has sent them of motorists driving too fast.

– When we can't even identify the driver, we stop there already. Then we cannot proceed with the criminal case, says Head of Secretariat Klaus Hansen from the South Zealand and Lolland-Falster Police to the media.

However, the poor images from the Storebælt are not the only criticism the new speed control has received. FDM believes that the speed control is on the verge of the law because it is a private company and not the police that handles it.

The speed control on the Storebæltsbroen is a so-called section control. Here, the drivers' average speed over three zones is measured. And it is actually the first time this has happened in Denmark.

It's just not something that a private company should take care of, according to the motorists' interest organization.

– In Denmark and most other legal states, it is the police who do speed control. It is not private companies that do speed control.

– And it is actually the latter that is the case here, and we believe that is not the right way to do it, says FDM.

Furthermore, the new speed control has proven to be far less automatic than the drivers were 'promised'. Read more about it here .
