Germany’s largest cities to build to the fight against Driving too fast, increasingly, fixed radar traps. So Hamburg and Berlin this year alone, 17 new speed cameras in operation, such as a survey of the news Agency dpa.

The Trend is continuing in the next year, so, for example, Dortmund wants to be able to flash in the next year to 18 Points at the same time, instead of only at eleven. More large cities will follow this example – with a prominent exception. Here is the Overview:

In Hamburg, is now flashed at 40 locations permanently, six stationary speed and red light monitoring systems have been alone in this year. There are also financial incentives: Almost 18.9 million euros have been invested by the end of November the Fund, which are about three million euros more than in 2017. “For us, it’s not about getting the people to cash in”, stressed a spokesman for the Department of interior. “But who’s driving too fast, endangering themselves and the other.”

In Stuttgart is also flashed frequently, about eleven million Euro has taken the city last year, according to its own information. 34 stationary speed cameras and six vehicles are in use. And the show apparently effective, as only four percent of the motorists drove at hohenheimer Straße to quickly. To be the beginning of the measurements, it has been more than seven percent, said the city.

The well-known radar trap, the greater the speed, decline a spokesman for the road traffic office of Frankfurt am Main explained . Stationary speed cameras are particularly effective. You have earned the city alone until the end of October four million euros. In some Places in the city, the number of speed violations by 90 percent went back.

Cologne shall use its own information to make the locations of the mobile speed cameras as soon as possible. “Wherever there is mobile speed cameras are used, they are clearly visible alone through this presence, many drivers be alert and drive slower,” says a city spokesman. The locations of the speed cameras will be published each week on the website of the city.

Cologne fall is already one of the cities with the most radar and upgrades. Soon, the city operates 39 of the stationary speed cameras, seven radar cars, two flash tons and ten semistationäre systems – the case of a trailer with a radar, parked on the roadside.

Also in Berlin is often flashed: this year, the city has installed eleven new speed cameras, which are available around the clock. Approximately 1.4 million Euro, the city-state of the cost.

Dortmund also strengthened his radar controls. Currently, six inpatient facilities and five measuring vehicles are used, in the next year can be flashed at 18 locations at the same time.

The Trend also semistationäre plants, such as the pendant with Blitzer. Frankfurt am Main has purchased this year, such a trailer, Düsseldorf is testing him right now. “The city Council believes that such a speed camera supporters are, the gap between the so-called star of the boxes and to close the Monitoring at changing locations,” says Volker Paulat from the Ordnungsamt Düsseldorf. The new trailer, the city has collected last year, 7.4 million Euro through the Flashing.

In Munich to be spared motorists so far, at least, of fixed radar controls to a large extent. A single stationary cameras, the Bavarian capital, currently are planned according to the city, no purchases. Even much smaller cities such as Leipzig or food have more – eight or four permanent radar speed checks. However, mobile speed cameras in Munich were very successful, said a spokesman. By radar controls, the Bavarian capital has cashed until September of this year, almost 1.5 million Euro – which, however, costs of around EUR 1.2 million for personnel and maintenance were the opposite.
