Radar Detectors May Become Illegal in Spain
After spending years in a legislation limbo, the radar detectors may become illegal from September, as the Congress will analyze the new project.
Why is Europe so keen on banning these devices still remain a mystery, especially as CB radios are so widely spread and drivers keep talking to each other and inform the ones listening about the position of the radars, whether stopped or on the move.
And even more, apps for both iOS and Android smartphones have become available, and user continuously upload real-time data for permanent updating the localization of radars.
We've seen countless riders and drivers "sticking" to a guy with a CB antenna, and who obviously is aware of the position of the next radar, so owning a radar detector is starting to look a bit obsolete. If one rides behind an "antenna guy" and sees him or her slowing down, it a 99% sign that a speed trap or a radar is near.
The law project also says that those caught with radar detectors must pay a €200 ($) fine and 3 license point will be added to their account. Oh, and by the way, small-size CB radios with earphones are also widely available at very decent prices.
