Safety camera boost in France, Luxembourg and Portugal

France and Portugal are increasing the numbers of police speed enforcement cameras and Luxembourg has presented a bill to introduce the technology for the first time.

France will add 500 fixed speed cameras over the next three years, taking the total to 4700, according to an announcement made by the Prime Minister Manuel Valls earlier this month. In addition, between 10,000 and 12,000 decoy units will also be installed – with the potential for cameras to be moved between units. The intention is to make it difficult for drivers to know whether the camera is activated or not and thus keep to an appropriate speed in all cases. France has a policy of warning drivers of the presence of cameras using road signs – this will not change.
