Part of the national road safety plan, the red-light radars--located on boulevard Dupong, boulevard Dr Charles Marx and route d’Esch--in the past months caught 316 drivers burning through a red light and 28,900 speeding violations. These locations were picked as “this is a particularly dangerous place where neither the [50kmh] speed limit nor the red lights are often respected,” explained a press release issued by the mobility ministry. The law infringements were not punished during the test phase.
The radars capture license plates from behind and will keep the pictures for another two weeks after the fine is paid.
The roadside camera on place de l’Étoile which became operational on 23 July 2021 resulted in 10,000 detected offences during its four-month test phase. Additional average speed radars are planned to be installed in the tunnels of the Nordstrooss, the A7 motorway, where the 90km/h speed limit in the tunnels is often exceeded.
