28 Aug 2014 by Ishbel     

Drive Europe: Need to Know | 4. Speed Camera Detectors

In the blogs last week and the week before, we looked at general driving laws across Europe. Today we go in depth on the murky subject of speed camera detectors.

There is a lot of confusion around the different types of speed camera detectors and their legality in different countries. This is an important subject for us Brits when driving abroad because many countries in Europe have more stringent laws. So your speed camera detector which is legal in England may be spotted as breaking the law when you’re driving in France, for example – and there are even stories of the French Police making people drive over theirs! Irrespective of the law in the country that you are driving in, the speed limit should always be adhered to for the safety of all on the road.
