BELGIUM - Flemish Ministers of Mobility Kathleen Van Brempt and Public Works Hilde Crevits announced Tuesday the 162 spots where flash poles with digital cameras will be erected during 2008 and 2009.
Forty digital flash cameras will be placed along motorways. The flash limit will be 129 km/h, with a technical fault margin of 6 percent above the speed limit of 120 km/h.
Images taken by the new digital cameras will be sent directly via Internet to the traffic police. Trucks can also be captured on film.
Apart from the flash poles along the motorways, 37 extra flash poles will be erected along divisional roads. There will also be 50 cameras set up at the traffic junctions of dangerous crossings, which will help register drivers who are not obeying the stop lights.
