4 new speed cameras have been installed yesterday, 2nd of October, at midnight. They are set up at Piton, Beau-Climat, along the road of Savanne, Richelieu, along the road of Rivière-Noire and at Sorèze, on the M1 motorway.
We now have a total of 40 radars on our roads. Drivers who love speeding will have to be even more cautious now; gone are the days of speeding, or so it seems!
According to the data gathered by the Traffic Branch, 30 476 drivers have been caught speeding from the 1st of January to the 30th of June – a number that shows that many will still not be deterred by the speed cameras. Well, as adamant as they might be, they are having to pay a price for their deeds. As a result, the State has amassed Rs 76 952 000 from all the fines that have been issued.
2013 had around Rs 124 million into the coffers of the State because of the speeding fines. This year will most probably have much more.
