New speed cameras: this what to expect
The radar arsenal promises to expand further in the coming years. If the hypothesis of checks by drones navigating above the highways still seems ambitious or even preposterous, other solutions are about to be found. see the light of day thanks to; impressive technical progress. Among the new weapons, the all-in-one radar, the formidable Mesta Fusion designed by the company Safran, promises to make its appearance very soon on the side of our roads. This turret radar could make it possible to multiply the number of offenses targeted: lack of insurance but also wearing of seat belts; or telephone while driving are mentioned!
Modernization also involves the arrival of new miniaturized radars to replace the famous binoculars of the military forces. 39;order. We have dedicated an explanatory subject via the new Truspeed speed camera.

All speed cameras in France
The 2017 finance law provides for an increase in the number of automatic speed cameras in France: from 4,450 at the end of 2016, the number has gone up; to 4,600 devices at the end of 2017 and even 4,700 in 2018. little replaced by more modern devices, including in particular the two-way function to control the two traffic axes. What to be therefore more effective. The State also prides itself on an increase in revenue related to radar checks:
+25% or 844 million euros in 2017 against 672 million in 2016. Over the years, the fleet of radars has been enriched with many devices to diversify the type of checks. Alongside fixed radars, there are now many devices:
Construction radars are now officially called
autonomous radars >. These are mobile devices, easily moved to be installed at the edges of the roads and automatically flash drivers who are speeding. Red light cameras: Appearing in 2009, red light cameras have been introduced. installed in town at crossroads, crossings; levels or on major axes. To be flashed for crossing a red light is a serious offence, punishable by the loss of four points on the driving license and a fixed fine of 135 euros.
On-board radar or mobile radar: On-board radar has come a long way. in recent years. Their number has increased but, above all, the technology has evolved. We speak today of "mobile mobile radars". They are integrated with; unmarked cars invisible to motorists. Until then led by uniformed police officers, they will be entrusted to from 2017 operators of private companies, approved by the State and circulating on programmed routes. The penalties are the same as for excessive speed detected by a fixed speed camera.
Decoy Radar: This is the latest brainchild of the authorities: decoy zones. On a route where accidents are considered to be frequent, it will be possible to install an autonomous radar that can be moved regularly and supported, in a second phase, by false radar cabins. The motorist will not know the exact positioning of the radar likely to flash him. The first devices were installed in 2016 in Pas-de-Calais.
Pedestrian radar: The first devices are in the test phase. According to Auto-Plus, a first pedestrian radar will be installed; to Lyons. In the form of a mast and several cameras discerning pedestrians and vehicles, this radar can read approaching plates and film motorists not giving priority. to pedestrians. The scene is transmitted to the municipal police who will then decide, after viewing, whether or not to issue a ticket to the motorist.
