The news may not come as a surprise, but it will certainly be bad news for those who like to drive a bit faster than allowed: Luxembourg's first average speed camera is coming in 2019.
According to RTL's sources, Luxembourg's roads and bridges department will install a first average speed camera on the N11 between Waldhaff and Dommeldange.
Average speed cameras calculate the speed of motorists on a four kilometre stretch of road. In theory, speeding motorists should no longer be able to trick the radar by slowing down as they near the speed camera, as the new system will calculate the average speed between the locations of two stationary cameras.
According to the Transport Minister, Francois Bausch, the roads and bridges authority selected this stretch of the road for the average speed camera pilot project.
The test phase will begin in spring 2019.
