Information about speed cameras in Majorca.

The Traffic Directorate has made public the locations of radar speed cameras. In Majorca, there are fourteen fixed and eighteen mobile radars. The MA-13, Palma-Sa Pobla motorway, has three fixed and one mobile. Along the MA-19 (Palma-Llucmajor), there are three - two fixed and one mobile. The MA-11 Palma to Soller has two mobile radars.

The official list indicates the roads, the location (in terms of kilometre distance) of fixed cameras and in which direction (many of them are in both directions).

Speaking about this summer's campaign to control speed on Spain's roads, the director-general for traffic, Pere Navarro, says that is all about avoiding accidents caused by speeding. "It is essential to respect speed limits in order to reduce fatalities on roads." He notes that other devices are being used, such as drones, which are very effective because they are difficult to detect.

Mini radars using tablets and laptops and Velolasers are other devices. The Velolasers cannot be picked up by radar detectors (which are illegal), have a battery life of around five hours, and can control vehicles doing speeds of up to 250 kph. Each one has cost some 15,000 euros.

Nationwide, the summer campaign will use 1,392 radars, twelve helicopters, eleven drones and fifteen disguised vans.

Instead of spending millions on equipment and people having to pay fines, make an EU law, that all cars in the EU cannot go faster than 140 km/hr (for 30 to 40 seconds) and the rest 125 km/hr as top speed, but run at like 1ltr : 75km. Then you have less accidents and victims, a LOT less pollution and we do not need these useless electric vehicles that are totally NOT environmentally friendly. It always makes me laugh when I see them with their little signs : zero emission. Yes, if you just look at that. But how it was made......I can run a V8 Land Rover for 6 to 8 years and still have a smaller carbon footprint than an electric car.
