Mobile speed radar Basel

Hi, I may have got zapped early this morning in a 30 zone, but not entirely sure. I've read there is a 7kmh error margin on these mobile units, which should put me into the 1-5kmh over category hopefully.

Does anyone know if they flash in mid-low light I.e. 7am as I was quite close to the margin limit?

He said it was a mobile unit so it's probably not in the same place now.

Keep to the speed limit, and it wont matter.

Good point.

It's often outside Kannenfeldpark, must be a hot spot along there.

Mobile means it was moving during the measurement. If it was stationery it is not considered as mobile but as stationary.

Upto 100 km/ margins are 3km/h and 5 km/hh for laser and radar systems respectively.
