The Guardia Civil's traffic police are to get mini-radars for detecting speeding. The first three of these devices will be available by the end of the month: one apiece for Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza. Others will follow, and Tráfico intends using them for secondary roads, especially for ones in the Tramuntana Mountains.
The mini-radars, which are so small that drivers will be unlikely to be aware of them, can be mounted on tripods and fitted to guard rails or placed in wooded areas. They can be controlled by 4G from a distance of several kilometres through the use of mobile technology, i.e. tablets. Using wifi, the distance is only short, but with 3G or 4G there are no limits.
Known as Velolaser, they will be added to existing devices for speed control, such as the fixed cameras. Speeds are detected by Lidar laser sensors, and the devices can record speeds up to 250kph.
