DGT radars practically undetectable

  • 52

They have been operating in our country since 2018 and they are still just as infallible (for the DGT) as when they were put on the market. In addition to the fixed and section speed cameras, the DGT has mobile cinemometers to monitor the speed on the road where it suits them best, like these Velolaser radars.


The difference with section and fixed speed cameras is that mobile speed cameras do not have to alert drivers before they pass. It is true that the DGT publishes on its website some kilometer points where its use is more commonbut they do not have to have any kind of warning signal.

For this reason, Velolaser radars have become known as the invisible radars. And it is that these devices with which the DGT has been monitoring us for four years are difficult for drivers to detect, if the agents so wish, due to their small size.

What are velolaser radars?

These radars are small speed controllers that can be held with one hand and that only need a small tripod placed next to the road to monitor all the vehicles that pass by or even attach it to a motorcycle or car with a magnetized tripod.

Another reason why they are called “invisible” is because these devices have Wifi technology or 3G/4G networks. Therefore, they can send the sanctions to a nearby patrol, which does not have to be parked next to it. In this way, it is more complicated to alert your position. In addition, it is capable of monitoring two lanes at the same time in a space of between 15 and 50 meters.

As for the speeds it registers, the Velolaser is not only used on expressways, it has also been used by some municipalities. And it is that its speed record detects all those who exceed the maximum allowed between 30 and 250 km/h, so it is also possible to see them in an urban environment. Especially since the speed on all one-way streets was limited to 30 km/h.

To all of the above it must be added that Velolaser radars are capable of discriminate between light and heavy vehiclesso it takes into account the speed at which each of them can circulate, and that they can also be fined at night.
