But... it can happen! IF you get caught... you will have to pay on the spot.

One of the ways to drive on base is to make an illegal left turn. There is a blue circle with and arrow only showing you may go right - at that intersection. EVERYONE makes a LEFT there because the street "use" to be able to do that. It also saves time, the legal way is a lot longer in distance and has two traffic lights. Last year... after going thru the gate check in(on Base) AND making that illegal LEFT turn... they kept my ID and gave it to the Polizei standing next to the gate guard(s). No points, just a ten euro fine - cash. Gave me a nice receipt too and sent me on my way.

The Autobahn cops when they catch a "big fish" they will drive them to an ATM to get cold cash. Or... most German cops now takes Visa/MC/AMEX.

Video from the LA/ED (Bayern) area (in German). They mention the Facebook Blitzer warnings.

I have been pulled over and they asked me for payment. Didn't have any cash on me so they made me and the wife go look for an ATM. Couldn't find one so my wife dropped her dads name (retired polizei) and they let us go. Lol gotten out of a few tickets this way.

That's a good video. I still have my passport 9500xi with laser jammer that I wish I could use. I could do a stealth install with a kill switch in case they run radar detector detector. Gotta ask a cop buddy here.

Super Blitzer..

That Super Blitzer(in the beginning of the video) is scary! They said it can issue three tickets at the SAME time across multiple lanes of traffic. Wow! At least those Blitzer boxes are pretty big and hard not to see.

In my opinion it's only marginally effective because several permanent speed cameras use road strips (just like the ones installed on the A8 Stuttgart). I have also observed a series of sensors spaced out over 2 meters that work in the same manner only measuring by IR I assume. It is usually placed on the road from Panzer to Holzgerlingen.

The 9500i will work like a charm against the ubiquitous Skoda Roomster with camera in the back and you can manually mark locations as you pass them.

The most effective success I have had is simply learning to listen to the radio reports.

Exclamation Blitzmarathon...

Starting today(and for the next SEVEN days!!!) the Germans are going crazy putting every cop on the roads and setting up speed traps. Especially in the cities and back roads. Be carefull.

YuP! For one entire week. Yesterday I was really amazed on how slow everyone was driving. Everyone is driving about 10 kph UNDER the speed limit. Well... except for me. lol

I will continue to drive the speed limit. I heard that enforcement is even tougher off the Autobahn on the Bundesstrasse roads, bc that is where most accidents happen. So be careful out there.
