The speed cameras They are installed throughout the entire Spanish territory. The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) made four million complaints in 2022, with more than 2,000 radars placed in our country. As is evident, not everyone fines equally, so let’s review the statistics.
He speeding it represents 60% of the total DGT sanctions, also becoming the main reason for traffic accidents. That is why scattered along our roads there are thousands of radars that detect when someone goes over the limits. Which fine (and collect) more?
The DGT radar that fines the most
In 2022, the DGT collected 507,361,888 euros in traffic fines, which is 63 million more than in 2021 (444,347,376). This distribution is not uniform and there is a specific radar that takes the cake in terms of speeding tickets issued with about 80,000.
It is a fixed radar in the province of Cádiz. Taking the data for 2022 as an example (in the absence of knowing the complete 2023 data), this is the radar that fined the most last year, with 79,258 sanctions, which would be about 217 per day on average.
Regarding its conditions, it is a fixed radar located in the kilometer 75 of the A-381 road, known as the Jerez-Los Barrios highway. Specifically, it has been placed at the exit of the Valdeinfierno tunnel in the direction of Los Barrios on this highway.
The sign announcing the presence of this radar is placed long before the Valdeinfierno tunnel, whose speed is limited to 100 km/hour, but this limitation is also maintained once the tunnel is finished, so drivers may be stepping on the accelerator thinking that the restriction only applies to the tunnel and then returns to 120 km/h on the highways.
Curiously, the Top 2 speed cameras that fine the most in Spain are on the same A-381 motorway, so the province of Cádiz is by far the one that contributes the most to the DGT coffers. This second largest radar is a classic of the annual statistics of radars. This second one is on the same road, but at kilometer 37, through Alcalá de los Gazules. In 2022, it accumulated 68,321 penalties for speeding.
Other more crowded radars
If we review the data from the Directorate General of Traffic on the 50 fixed and section radars that are least respectedwe can check which are the others that carried the most sanctions last year completely, starting from the third position after the two of the A-381 that we have commented before.
