everything that changes in 2022

This year, speed cameras are still evolving and being improved in order to track down the slightest speeding. Here’s what’s changing in 2022.

It is a godsend that should bring more than 2 billion euros each year to the State: the radars are accelerating their deployment in France, with some new features this year that may well make you fall into the trap.

Indeed, if they are not going to disappear for the moment, the panels announcing the radars will rather multiply, to eventually reach no less than 25,000 panels ! Objective: to create confusion with the arrival of new signs indicating “safe routes”, where you will find real speed cameras, decoy cabins, or nothing at all…

Speed ​​cameras: numerous speed cameras on the roads

Numbering 250, these “secure routes” will be more and more numerous, and welcome more and more autonomous radars, but also turrets. These are now configured for double flashon two-way roads without a central divider.

The autonomous radars are also increasingly present in all the French departments: there would be around 230 to date. They are found on secure routes, but also in construction areas, and tend to replace the classic “owl” radars. A new mobile radar should also join the ranks of approved devices: the Parifex NanoCam, a very small model allowing, thanks to its 3D LiDAR, to detect many types of offenses (speed control, respect of stop signs, reserved lanes, one-way streets or white lines).

Speed ​​cameras: new traps in town

Le automated parking control, which makes it possible to sanction the absence of payment by a famous FPS (Forfait de Post-Parking), will now equip around thirty cities in France. According to our information, it can now be found in: Alfortville, Amiens, Annemasse, Béthune, Béziers, Biarritz, Bordeaux, Bourgoin-Jallieu, Brive-la-Gaillarde, Chatou, Clichy, Le Puy-en-Velay, Lille, Marseille, Metz , Montpellier, Nice, Nogent-sur-Marne, Pau, Paris, Reims, Rosny-sous-Bois, Rouen, Rueil-Malmaison, Saint-Denis de La Réunion, Strasbourg, Thionville and Thonon-les-Bains. He will then land in Evreux, Lyon and Toulouse, before invading many other cities!

Speed ​​limits of 30 km/h in town are also becoming widespread, with the arrival of a new trap: do not rely on signs, the speed limit of 30 km/h can now be painted on the ground. Something to create confusion, especially in low visibility. The mini radar turretsor urban radars, are also developing: the Mesta Compact model (found in the south of France) is already approved, while the Parifex Nano (in the northern half of the country) will only be approved by the start of the school year.

Speed ​​cameras: we will escape it (for now)

Despite all this bad news, some new measures should not affect us, at least for now: challenged last year by the Constitutional Council, the clamping of driving aid tools (Waze, Coyote, …) is not yet operational. Nor will there be “anti-braking radar” in our regions, as can be found in Spain.

Tested for several months in France, in Bron, in the Chevreuse valley, Nice, Paris, Rueil-Malmaison, Toulouse and Villeneuve-le-Roi, the anti-noise radars are not yet approved to verbalize vehicles that are too noisy. On the other hand, the radar cars are deployed everywhere in France, but there are four regions that are still resisting the privatization of radar cars: Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Ile-de-France, Occitanie and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur… A truce which should, however , be short-lived!
