Default Beware of Speed Cameras

Majorca Daily Bulletin
has an article on Speeding Fines...
Two thirds of fines are in Calvia, but the second highest is from the camera outside Pollenca on the road to the motorway and Sa Pobla!!
There is a map showing the speed cameras here

Take care out there...don't speed...

Remember, Spanish fines can be enforced through a UK magistrates court.

Got nicked once on the MA13 once, which is a bit stupid as they are well sign posted. Am much more observant now!

I see in the Bulletin that there are calls for the speed limit on the MA13 to be reduced to 80kph.

I think they'd need a lot more cameras if they did, as 120kph seems slow to me when I am impatiently driving to PP after a long absence!

The Traffic Directorate has made public the locations of radar speed cameras. In Majorca, there are fourteen fixed and eighteen mobile radars. The MA-13, Palma-Sa Pobla motorway, has three fixed and one mobile. ...

The official list indicates the roads, the location (in terms of kilometre distance) of fixed cameras and in which direction (many of them are in both directions).

... the director-general for traffic, Pere Navarro, says that is all about avoiding accidents caused by speeding. "It is essential to respect speed limits in order to reduce fatalities on roads." He notes that other devices are being used, such as drones, ...

Mini radars using tablets and laptops and Velolasers are other devices. The Velolasers cannot be picked up by radar detectors (which are illegal), ...

Nationwide, the summer campaign will use 1,392 radars, twelve helicopters, eleven drones and fifteen disguised vans.

Apparently the lack of traffic, due to the Covid restrictions, has led to increased speeding incidents in a number countries.

Well, Ive just received my ticket for €100, got done on the MA2200 100kph on 90 stretch, wish I’d known about them beforehand. If I pay within 20 days it’s reduced to €50 bank transfer only, I can’t see option to pay by credit card, unless someone can advise differntly.
