Speed camera network
Built in the year 2004 and onwards, this network of around one thousand automatic speed cameras has achieved the desired goal : reduce average speed in France. With the consequence of less deaths on the roads, and more fines being delivered to french drivers. New and improved speed cameras are installed monthly, the current official limit being two thousand speed cameras in service.
The system is highly computerized with little human intervention. When a vehicle is caught speeding by an automatic speed camera, the picture is immediatly sent via broadband internet connection to a dedicated police center where the registration of the car is taken. A fine is then sent to the owner of the car.
