Be on the lookout for these striped poles when driving around Luxembourg. The first ten of many speed radars are now active and have already dished out over 1000 speeding tickets in two days. The speed trap catching the most speeders is located in Merl on the A4, just south of the tunnels going under the circle by the International School of Luxembourg. These stationary radars are all monitoring our speed regardless of which direction you are traveling or which lane you are in. They are working twenty-four hours a day. Several “surprise” mobile speed detectors are also going into service today, and they will be shifted to different locations daily, so the best advice is to simply drive under the speed limit at all times. The goal here is not to get your money, but to save lives. Ten more of the fixed, striped poles will go into operation in April.
