Speed cameras in helicopter will catch every speeding driver, warns traffic ministry
22 March 2013 @ 01:56

DRIVERS will be spied upon from the air over the Easter holidays now that the traffic authorities plan to fly helicopters with speed cameras above Spain's most-frequented roads. The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) has launched the first of these, Pegasus, which takes three images in a matter of nanoseconds, capturing speeding drivers on film, which are then examined before being sent to the car-owner's house. DGT sources say the flying radar costs about as much as a traditional speed camera – between 60,000 and 170,000 euros – but covers a much wider area.
