If most cabins only monitor one lane, other radars are on the other hand capable of flashing in both directions.
They are more and more numerous on the roads, and above all, they are always more sophisticated and efficient. Whether they are fixed, discriminating, sections or even on-board, radars are everywhere and some are now capable of flashing several infringing vehicles at the same time. A profusion of technology in the service of the fight against road mortality, according to the government, but which above all makes it possible to fill the state coffers. And for good reason, in 2020, there are more than 1.39 billion euros which were collected thanks to automated controls. But a question arises for many motorists: can speed cameras flash in both directions? We get back to you.
The answer is simple, yes, fixed speed cameras can indeed flash in both directions traffic. But be careful, because not all are concerned. Indeed, according to the site Radars-Auto.com, only 3rd generation cabins are able to ticket vehicles traveling in two directions of traffic simultaneously. It is therefore impossible to recognize them, especially when you are in traffic. However, not all route configurations are compatible with two-way verbalization. Indeed, the lanes separated by a central reservation do not allow this type of flash.
In addition, worksite radars can also detect speeding in both directions of traffic. On the other hand, and as for the classic cabins, they control only one direction when they are established on a road with two times two lanes.
