Offence: Using Radar Detectors.

Using radar detectors will result in a fine and the loss of points. Using radar inhibitors will see you lose 6,000 euro (with no discount by the way) and losing 6 points. Some GPS devices have information which tells you where fixed radars and cameras are located. As this information is provided freely by the DGT with the intention of slowing traffic in these areas, devices which give this sort of fixed data information are permitted.

Fine: 200 euro and the loss of 3 points

Reason: Radar speed detectors are aimed at reducing casualties through detection. Anything which inhibits the safe operating of the roads is potentially deadly. The use of information relating to incident “black spots” is acceptable as this information is designed to reduce the speeds on entire stretches of roads.
