Braking when approaching a speed camera could soon cost you dearly

These new cameras, soon to be in service in the United Kingdom, could quickly arrive on our roads if they prove effective.

Smile, you might be filmed (again)! Once is not customary, we are not going to tell you about a new radar arriving in France, even if it will not be long if it proves effective.

So let’s cross the Channel this time, and look at the United Kingdom, or a new camera system has just come into action.

Be careful when braking before a radar

When approaching a gray box, even if you are at the regulatory speed, you, like all of us, have a tendency to slow down “just in case”.

Others, more familiar with the road they are taking, prefer to brake at the last moment, while those who have not been very attentive brake suddenly and, regularly, a little too late since the radar has probably seen you before.

This type of braking is obviously dangerous, especially if traffic is heavy, and it can obviously cause accidents.

How does this device work?

To counter this phenomenon, a new camera will come into action in the United Kingdom and detect drivers who suddenly slow down when approaching a speed camera.

The cameras have already been successfully tested in Spain. They also work by placing a mobile device in a different location from a fixed radar, thus making it possible to detect drivers who accelerate just after passing the first small gray box.

If we already had to pay attention to fixed and mobile radars, we may soon also have to be vigilant to the cameras that precede them, but also those that follow. In the event of an infraction, drivers will receive a ticket directly. It remains to be seen how it will be indexed in France if such a system is deployed.
