That's great for someone who has never moved more than 60 kilometers from where they grew up. Of course they know where all permanent locations along with likely ambush locations Us 'Mericans are just plain SOL and need to be ever vigilant.

The blitzer radio reports do help as well as the onslaught of drivers from the other direction who flash their lights....that's cool when it happens.

You'd be surprised... I have moved around quite a lot, at least by german standards . I'm only in the Stuttgart area for barely 7 years now. Used to live 500km away .

Achtung, Alkoholkontrolle!!!

Just saw this pics on Auto Motor und Sport's website. I thought it was kind of funny. I wonder what country this police car/van is from?

IF you notice... the vehicles the Polizei uses(in my area) are always the same... they just install different lic plates. Also... on the Autobahn they always mount the camers ABOVE the guard railing... but on Bundesstrasse they can mount the cameras UNDER the railing - making detection harder.

I love these pics! Last summer I blew bye a "mysterious" blue van on a mountain road...twice in five minutes! The second time by there was a Polizei stepping out of the bushes about to get back into the van. I thought for sure I was screwed since I was about 10 over when I went by the first time but I never saw a ticket. Thank god for piss breaks.

I guess we're pretty lucky here, but I rarely see roadside cameras around the Wiesbaden area.

Normaly the owner of that House calls the Cops and invite them to "flash" arround. If the Owner thinks there are to many Speed violations, he just give them a call...

Exclamation New Blitzer location...

New Blitzer location in Bamberg... on Münchner Ring B22 heading towards (coming down from the Klinikum (hospital)) to Berliner Ring (ATU & Burger King)intersection. Reifen Wagner and Aldi on the corner near where they setup the camera(s)...

Münchner Ring (B22) this street used to have a 70 kph speed limit. This year it has been changed to 50 kph! I have never seen the Polizei set up here.

Here's some photos I've collected over the years...

First one is from Lermoos Austria, coming from 179 and heading into town, just after you pass the fire station on the right... I think the camera is designed to photograph you from the rear...but then again, maybe it's for oncoming traffic...Andreas, any thoughts?
