Price of fuel, Permis à Points and new fixed speed camera spotted
Price of fuel
Last Friday, the 1st of March 2013, the price of fuel was reviewed with an increase of 5-6% as follows:
Essence: Rs 52.25/L
Diesel: Rs 43.95/L
New fixed speed camera
This weekend, several persons (including me) have been reporting the installation of a new speed camera along the Phoenix Beau Songes Link Road, some 1km away from the Phoenix Commercial Center.
The set up seems to be a different set of equipment from existing ones at Camp Chapelon. This one comprises of two huge flashes with a camera placed in between them, all of them on the same side of the road. Probably, the only camera can be turned around to shoot from one direction at a time. People also reported that speed camera detectors are able to capture their signals. Right now, I can’t say if they are 100% operational.
You are welcomed to report any new camera installed
Permis à Points
While listening to Radio Plus a few days ago, an interesting question was asked on air: let’s say that I hired your car and I got flashed while exceeding the limit. Who will be allocated the penalty points in this case? Can the picture be used to determine who was the driver? Can this be used in a court of justice? And if the driver was not identified?
At that precise moment, no one could give an answer. No wonder, the authorities always do things halfway.
