Fixed stationary speed camera measurements


The measuring speed camera is permanently installed on the roadside. It controls incoming traffic and is effective at a distance of 3-15m. The induction loop in the lane triggers a signal or, with modern radar frequencies, or flashers, radar or laser radiation hits the vehicle and is reflected. If the vehicle moves towards the measuring speed camera system, the frequency of the reflected radar or laser radiation increases.

The speed is calculated from this data. If it is above the allowed speed limit, a photo ("with flash") is triggered to capture license plates and the driver. The measured speed of the car is displayed on the photo.

Warning or jamming a fixed speed camera

Fixed speed cameras are used everywhere in Europe, a timely warning by a radar detector with integrated GPS speed camera database is possible without any problems.

Almost all radar detector manufacturers offer the opportunity to update the GPS speed camera database at regular intervals. This is often possible free of charge. The updated speed camera data is downloaded from the Internet as a file and then transferred to the radar detector system (e.g. to the hidden installed Stinger VIP radar detector) using a USB stick.

Such an update allows information for permanently installed speed cameras for all of Europe to be transferred to the radar detector.

Active interference or jamming of fixed speed camera systems is not possible, a reduction in speed is advisable to avoid a speeding ticket.
