Yes, AFAIK, most cameras take front and back photos.

Re: What happens when radar catch a bike

... nothing happens. Bicycles are not required to have speedometers, so you have no means to check your speed.

Re: What happens when radar catch a bike

If you want it, here you are:
There is a speed check(Geschwindigkeitsmessung) in Rüschlikon , Mönchhofstrasse (Start at the seestrasse in Kilchberg, climb the Horn-Haldenstrasse , turn left in the Alte Landstrasse, straight ahead you will find the Mönchhofstrasse (the speed check is behind a construction site ).
Allowed is 30 km/h, fastest speed i got there was 52km/h, but no police is there.

Yeah, sure it's possible, the Kantonspolizei has got a picture of all of us bikers.

Mind you that few weeks ago I was caught speeding up on my rollerblades at 61 km/h, while the limit was at 60! bad luck indeed!
