Madrid has more than 20 fixed radars placed to control citizens' speeding. There are areas where the collection is higher. According to data from the City Council of the capital, the pole radar located on Paseo de la Castellana 300 was the one that captured the most photographs due to speeding during the past year. To be exact, it fined 142,700 cars after exceeding the 50 km / h limit. This is followed by the M-30, at the tunnel entrance in Marqués de Monistrol southbound. In addition to the one located in Paseo de Santa María de la Cabeza number 115.
The Madrid City Council has provided a list of the radars with the highest fines in Madrid. The award, as we say, is for the one that is placed on the Paseo de la Castellana. This radar was able to detect during each day nearly 400 vehicles exceeding the speed limit. This positions it as the one that imposed the most sanctions last year, exceeding the A-4 radar located in Córdoba by 30,000 fines. Another setback for drivers driving to Andalusia.
Of the 26 radars, only three are outside the M-30
In second place in the ranking we find the gantry radar calibrated at 70 km / h. It is located at the entrance to the tunnels of the M-30 southbound, in front of the Casa de Campo in Marqués de Monistrol. He hunted about 100,000 cars during 2016, with an average 270 day fines . In third place we have the Santa María de la Cabeza pole radar, calibrated at 50 km / h. Specifically, it is located at the height of the street number 115. It is located in the direction of the entrance of the city, about 300 meters from the exit of the tunnel of the Plaza Elíptica. This device detected more than 81,300 drivers during the past year going at a speed higher than the allowed speed.
After the podium and in fourth place we have the one located at kilometer 19 of the M-30, limited to 70 kilometers per hour. We found him at the exit of the tunnels and in front of San Pol de Mar. He took the photo of 69,214 license plates throughout the past year. We can say that for a time it was the one that received the most fines after slowing down on that stretch. Also, the fifth position is for the one in the cinemometer located on the A-5. Located about 500 meters from the end of the tunnel on Avenida de Portugal. This radar captured some 49,100 photographs in 2016 to vehicles that were going more than 70 km per hour.
The radar that gave less trouble is the one located at kilometer 13 of the M-30 (at the entrance to the tunnel in front of Legazpi). Nor did the one at kilometer 15 of the M-30 tunnel (at the Santa María de la Cabeza exit) or kilometer 13 of the outer zone of the M-30 (located in the southern junction sense) have to work too hard. ).
According to data, the 26 fixed radars found in the Spanish capital recorded a daily average of 2,250 cars, which led to a total of about 821,000 captures. Of that total number of images, 23 percent are expected to be canceled. This means that some 641,000 drivers were formally fined throughout last year.
Radars do not have a collection purpose
If we talk about the radars that fined the most for months, we have to say that those of July and December were the ones that received the most fines. This coincided with the moments of more pollution registered in the capital. Since it caused some of the M-30 aircraft to lower the speed limit to 70 kilometers per hour . Many of the drivers did not comply with this measure and their vehicles ended up being photographed.
Mobile radars in the capital captured fewer drivers. Specifically, they fined a total of 47,960 cars throughout the past year . From the Madrid City Council they insist that the radars do not have a collection purpose. They are simply there to prevent accidents.
