Complete Holiday return campaign with millions of trips on Spanish roads We all want to arrive earlier, and traffic violations are common. Too prevent drivers from violating the traffic rules and endangering their safety and that of others, the General Directorate for Transport (DGT) is increasing the number of troops on the roads and implementing innovative traffic monitoring systems. Navigators and mobile devices warn of the location of speed control systems and it is necessary to do so Hurry on the last meters and reduce just before arrival. However, with the latest innovation, which includes “anti-brake” and “anti-acceleration” sensors, the braking will come to an end.
How do anti-brake radars work?
The DGT’s ‘anti-braking’ radar system uses two cameras a short distance apart to detecting drivers in front of the radar when braking. The system is similar to that of cascaded radars and combines a mobile and a stationary radar. Captures a fuller picture of the road and a greater distance traveled, so in a section of radar that records the activity of the vehicle between the two points In this way, they also recognize the vehicles that accelerate after they have passed the second device.
Fines forbreakingg off the radar
The DGT has installed 16 radars of this type on Spanish roads, adding them to sections 780 fixed, 545 mobile, and 92 that are already in operation. The regulation provides for fines of 100 to 600 euros for those who commit speeding offenses detected by radar. So on a road with a maximum speed of 120 km/h, the fines are as follows:
- 100 euros between 120 and 150 km/h.
- 300 euros and 2 points between 150 and 170 km/h.
- 400 euros and 4 points between 171 and 180 km/h.
- 500 euros and 6 points between 181 and 190 km/h.
- 600 euros, 6 points, and an obligation to respond in court if you exceed 191 km/h.
Radar speed margins
Regulation ICT/155/2020, defines the requirements that measuring devices must meet, including radar devices, and halves the margin of error. But at the moment they are not being applied and they are the same ones that were approved in February 2015: this is still the case 7% or 7 km/h for mobilekilometerss, that is, those installed in vehicles or those that are assembled and disassembled.
It is important to remember that stationary speed cameras and section speed cameras are stricter and therefore apply the rule of 5, meaning that the margin is 5% above 100 km/h, and 5 km/h must be added if the maximum speed on the road does not exceed 100 km/h.
