for those planning a trip to or through france next season, I have exciting news!

the newest, long awaited Generation 5 speed camera has arrived!



zoom out for a size comparison?

ok


the lower camera is calibrated for cars & bikes, the upper unit for HGV's. Obviously it takes you from behind...

they've also done away with the nice radar warning sign, & replaced it with what they like to call a " radar pédagogique"

like this, about a km & a half before the radar.



it tells you your speed, in yellow if you're under the limit & in red if you're over it




They installed this one last week. I now have no way of getting to work without going past at least one speed camera... unless I take some shortcuts... (see ride reports) :thumbright:

So what's the score then Chris, I know you warned me in the summer that they were taking the warning signs away, is this better or worse?

btw, I think I'm safe now as I haven't received any 'you're a naughty boy' letters so far :cyclopsani:
