YMMV on this. I was pulled over on a French highway couple of years ago for speeding. The policeman explained (in a very poor English) that i was flashed by a fixed camera and, to confirm that, i was measured with a hand-held radar by the police patrol. I was pulled over because both reading showed that i was speeding (140km/h on a 110/km/h section of the highway).On the plus side, if you get a speeding ticket from a fixed camera, you should be ok to not recieve any fines or fee's, having said that, DONT go doing it just on my say so apparently the UK is the bermuda triange of europe, and anyone who enters or leaves will likely not get a ticket from the visiting/visited country. so if you do get flashed dont panic!
Yeah it's probably not worth the risk, I will go to halfords tomorrow, atleast I have my work high viz and the wife has her pink one for on her bike and my car has a euro number plate so that's a start atleast.I would take great care in NOT carrying things, your looking at approximately 90 euro's fine per missing item. For the sake of a 7 or 8 pound breathalyser kit, do you really want to be paying that much? or for a 12 pound bulb kit? or a 4 pound per person vest?
You could either pay one fines worth and buy everything, or risk one fine per every missing item! - Dont forget, most of these items you will use over the next few years, so think of it as an investment, as opposed to a fee for your holiday...
Although cautious, Speeding over in foreign countries is very easy to do, given that you are looking by default at the MPH, and might slip up, and the different driving styles / positions on the road, you could easily slip up.
Most people I know who got caught speeding via camera, got away with it, ALL who got caught by a policeman, (as previously mentioned) got politely directed towards an ATM!
The same happens here, If a foreign driver gets a minimal fine (lorry parking on the hard shoulder) then they are asked to pay the £30 or whatever fine on the spot and the matter is resolved, but we couldnt get the reg details from that country to post the fine!
