More than 1,400 stationary photographic cameras were installed on the streets of Moscow alone, and in 2017 at least 800 “overseers” will appear in the city. Complexes closely monitor the road and identify violators. But what should law-abiding motorists do in order not to get a fine if they inadvertently exceed the speed? Experienced motorist and lover of advanced technologies Dmitry “Goblin” Puchkov shares tips on how to know in advance about the upcoming meeting with the camera and when you need to carefully monitor the speedometer needle.
Tip number 1, free and home. For the patient.
You’ll have to tinker a bit - you need to download the free People’s Anti-Radar Detector
application on your Android smartphone, which is available for free on Google Play (a version for iOS will later appear). Then - do not forget to turn on the GPS-receiver in your phone. The program allows you to receive real-time warnings in advance about approaching stationary complexes, fines for speeding, driving to a dedicated lane, and so on. Moreover, the application also contains information on the most likely locations for installing mobile traffic police ambushes! By the way, in the Moscow, Rostov and Samara regions have already introduced a complete ban on mobile cameras, which makes useless the main plus of a separate radar detector. Therefore, do not believe those who claim that they cannot do without a radar detector for 10,000 rubles.
By the way, the program is not without reason called popular - you can independently add to the map those or other new objects you noticed. Although the application receives daily database updates, and for the whole of Europe. So you can be fully equipped when visiting countries of both near and far abroad.Tip # 2, free and mobile.
