On French roads, signs indicating automatic speed cameras appeared in 2003 with the arrival of these devices. Motorists are therefore familiar with these different signs and their meaning. But these will evolve soon.
Thus, all the signs announcing the presence of automatic speed cameras on which appeared the words “for your safety, automatic speed cameras” or “for your safety, frequent speed camera checks” will be replaced by three other types of panels, according to information from the site radars-auto.com.
No reference to; security of motorists will be indicated. Drivers will be able to see at instead a simple panel with the pictogram of the radar wave, a car and a two-wheeler, but without text.
Different types of panels depending on the situation
Another type of panel can replace the old ones in other cases. It is a simple sign with an indication of the number of kilometers. This means that, over this distance, it is possible to cross any type of radar, but also the possibility of let there be none.
Last possible panel: the one with the pictogram of the radar wave with the motorcycle or the car and a speed limit indication. When it is visible, it’s to be expected. see a fixed radar a few hundred meters away.
