The speed is reduced on Storebælt, even if the control does not work

In a reply to the Norwegian Parliament, the Minister of Transport is pleased that fewer motorists are driving too fast on the Great Belt, even if the speed control does not work.

The cruise control does not work on the Storebælt.

In any case, the South Zealand and Lolland-Falster Police in January and February have not been able to charge a single one of the motorists that Sund & Bælt has reported for speeding on the bridge.

A total of 31 times during that period, motorists have been reported for speeding across the Great Belt, where line controls have now been set up.

But the photos of the speeding offenders are so bad that the police cannot use them for anything. Nevertheless, Transport Minister Thomas Danielsen (V) welcomes the inspection.

He writes this in a reply to the Danish People's Party's Nick Zimmermann, who on 1 March asked the minister to consider that the police cannot print stalls on the Storebælt.

In his answer, Thomas Danielsen states, among other things, that he is happy about the speed control. The minister calls it 'a means of ensuring accessibility on the bridge for the benefit of all road users'.

– I have understood at Sund & Bælt that, after the introduction of speed control and signage about active fixed control on the Great Belt link, a clear decrease in the number of motorists speeding by more than 30 per cent has been registered. too fast. It is, of course, gratifying, it concludes.

But the cruise control does not work as it should. Not automatically either. The police's systems cannot talk to Sund og Bælt's systems.

Instead, employees at Sund og Bælt must manually extract the speeding offenders' information in order to report them to the police.
