The best hours to travel and avoid traffic fines from DGT radars

Date: May 19, 2024 Time: 15:20:28

Road trips increase in summer and, therefore, the DGT launches various special surveillance campaigns. A greater volume of vehicles in circulation directly affects road safety and, therefore, Traffic implements all its devices to control that the behavior of drivers follows the traffic regulations. If you want to avoid the fine of a mobile radar, it is easy if you plan your trip the times when there is less traffic on the highway in the country.

One of the methods most used by the DGT, and most feared by drivers, are radars. In Spain there is a total of 780 fixed speed cameras and 92 section speed cameras, of which their location is known and their position is also duly marked on the road, so you simply have to respect the speed limits while driving to avoid traffic fines. fico

There are also mobile radars, which are a total of 545 devices that can be placed, indistinctly, in more than double the number of beds available for it. In other words, there are more than 1,300 positions where there could be a mobile radar and, probably, we will not realize it until it has hunted while driving above the speed limits.

Systems to locate speed cameras on the road

One way to avoid and locate these radars is to use applications such as Google Maps or Waze which, thanks to user contributions, marks where the cinemometers are (or could be) along a route. We remind here that radar jammers and detectors are prohibited by law and only if they are carried in the car, even if we do not use them, we can receive a fine of more than 3,000 euros.

Another way to reduce the risk of running into a radar is to choose the time we travel well. Be careful, with this we are not wanting to say that by driving at a certain time instead of another we will not find cinemometers on the road, but we will reduce the possibilities.

When to travel to avoid radars

The DGT indicates certain hours to travel during the month of August as unfavorable. Although we are past the worst, after leaving behind the bridge on the 15th, the weekends that lie ahead (and given the high temperatures) may continue to present complicit traffic scenarios.

Thus, during Friday afternoon, Saturday morning, Sunday afternoon and Monday morning, more cars on the road and, therefore, more DGT controls.

Therefore, if we travel during the week, in the early hours of the morning or at night, we drive up with more calm and with less risk of coming across radar. In addition, between midnight and five in the morning there are certain motorways that are free or cheaper, so in addition to avoiding the heat, traffic jams and speed cameras, we will save money on tolls.
