Unfortunately, the police do not apply the Kruidvat principle whereby you always pay the most expensive product in the case of special promotions. If you drive past the same speed camera three times, you will simply be fined three times. A selfless volunteer tested last weekend on the Nieuwesluizerweg in Slootdorp. Although he did not know at the time that he was conducting important scientific research.
NH News reports that the driver was flashed three times on the 80-road in North Holland. The first time he drove past the flash at 134 km/h, on the way back again at 124 and later the officers recorded a speed of 122 km/h. The driver can count on a total amount of 1,600 euros. The public prosecutor has yet to decide whether to collect the driver’s license – normally the police only do this when stopped.
Lots of drivers on the road
The officers were apparently well concealed or the driver was not paying attention. After the flash day, the police concluded that 21 percent of the drivers did not comply with the speed limit that day. A total of 120 fines were issued to speed drivers. It is not known whether more lucky ones received multiple fines from the same speed camera.
