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.

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.

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.

Yea... and now the Polizei are starting to roll out thosenew SuperBlitzer... they can take four pictures per second across three lanes of traffic. Also he new infrared(infrarot) Blitzer do not flash! Those just started to be used in the Munich area last week. It's getting to be like a war out there! By me in Bayern the cops are mounting the cameras UNDER the guardrail on the Autobahns and Bundesstraße...

this is in Dresden area (former East German)...

Exclamation abstand Blitzer...

Abstand = tail gaters

The German Polizei set up these mobile camera units on top of the bridges on the Autobahns. The road has some white painted strips and they use three cameras(two mounted atop of the bridge) and one mounted down bellow on the middle guard rail - to video the driver.

These cameras are hard to detect, especially when your driving in excess of 200+ kph!

The Law says you MUST have half your tacho(speedo) speed in meters. So IF you are driving 200 kph, you need(at least) 100 meters of safe distance. IF they catch you with less... it can be very expensive(and or) you can loose your driver's license for a few months.


Lets see how good you are at detecting the cameras...
