Multi-lane speed cameras can monitor up to 6 lanes travelling in both directions at the same time. The M30 has two of these cameras. We reveal where they are, how they work, and what infringements they can detect.
Multi-lane speed cameras are able to monitor traffic travelling in both directions, analysing the speed of the vehicles travelling in the opposite direction. Another pertinent feature is that they specifically monitor each vehicle, which means that relevant details such as whether they have passed the Spanish equivalent of the M.O.T test or have valid insurance can be confirmed.
They have been tested for two months since August 2019 to check their performance and efficiency. Any drivers who have committed infringements during this trial period were given notice that from 6th October onwards those offences would now receive real penalties.
Penalties are set by the local police. Therefore, from 6th October all vehicles travelling in excess of 90km/h at these points will receive a maximum fine of €100.
These measures have been taken by Madrid City Council to provide greater coverage to the designated areas. Infringements will be detected quicker and more efficiently.
Paying due attention to these speed cameras isvital in avoiding accidents. It also helps reduce traffic noise, which damages health.
