where to find them to avoid the new fines

Last week the new Law on Traffic, Motor Vehicles and Road Safety. And, with it, one of the changes that more controversy has raisedthe removal of the 20 km/h speed margin when overtaking on a secondary road.


One of the reasons for making this decision was given by Pere Navarro, director of the DGT, to The world: “Eliminating it may favor the installation of more section radars in the future, fairer than those at a single point”.

Other radars that the DGT usually uses on secondary roads are the Velolaser, known as “invisible” because of how difficult it is to detect them as a driver. As long as the agents want it to be so, of course. Their small size makes them very difficult to detect but there are already those who have put them on the map.

Since 2018, the DGT Velolaser radars have carved a niche for themselves in the collective imagination of drivers as those very small kinemometers, which control several lanes and are really effective. They have also given rise to some urban legends that should be demystified.

As confirmed by the DGT, the agency has the same 60 radars that were purchased four years ago. Their number has not increased and neither do they control the use of mobile phones or seat belts. They are mobile radars that control speed.

It is true that their small size makes them difficult to detect. These can be installed on tripods, on vehicle bodies and even on guard rails, although the DGT assures us that they are only available in the first of these options.

Mobile speed cameras, unlike fixed ones, they don’t need to be warned prior to drivers. On the DGT website, you can find the location of all fixed speed cameras and kilometric sections where it is usual to find mobile radars. But they do not specify what types of radars they are.

In these cases, the work of the drivers in social networks such as SocialDrive, where you can exchange traffic incident information in real timeis the most reliable source to know where the DGT Velolaser radars are frequently located.

Some are almost invisible and not only fine for speeding: all the systems with which the DGT monitors you

But, as we said, mobile radars are just that: mobile. Therefore, on the map with the most common locations Where Velolaser or “invisible” radars have been seen it is easier for you to match them, but you can also do it on other roads.
