With the first speed camera of a new type reported along the Phoenix-Beau Songes link road in a previous blog post, another blogger informed us of a new speed camera, this time at Paillotte, near the entrance to Candos.
This brings me to write this new post to map them altogether. This blog post will be updated whenever needed with locations of fixed speed cameras as well as those frequent regions where mobile cameras are usually placed.
As usual, you are the most welcomed to report any new fixed speed cameras. Pictures are the most welcomed. You can mail them at yashvin[at]awootar[dot]com.
Update 23rd March 2013:
In an article in the local press, it was announced that the cameras will be operational as from mid-April 2013.
Update 29th March 2013:
The authorities are placing speed camera warning signs in the concerned areas. Scr0ll at the bottom of the post for the picture.
