Re: Speeding 105 in a 60 zone

Eeesh, 102 in a 60 limit. I think they take off 5pkh, unless that's already been done? Expect a big fine and 3 month ban. Wish you well with it.

There's a difference between not being legally permissible (will police or insurance companies accept data from a Swiss dashcam?) and illegal.
As always: It depends. But the answer is surely not a no.

Re: Speeding 105 in a 60 zone

Sounds like he got lucky but that’s just a ridiculous speed, we all all have been caught speeding. 60 or 70 in a 50 zone u could say shit happens but that speed is no excuse and damn recklessness endangering lives.

Dashcams are NOT illegal in Switzerland.

That is a myth. Just like flushing toilets being forbidden after 10PM
Every Tesla, Model 3 at least, is recording from 4 cameras all the time they are driving and also when approached are touched when parked...

102
102 in what you thought was 80.

Good thing your profile says you like cycling. Doing 102 in a 50 I think you won't be driving for a while unless the sign change prank can be used in your defence.

It's a really dodgy piece of road to be fair. Both ways.

At least they have endless construction going on there now so you're coming into 80kph limit to a motorway or coming off 80 limit from it.

Not surprised police is milking people there
I was there the other day. There are THREE OVERSIZED "60" signs as you enter the road. Even with my record of speeding tickets (generally just above the limit but enough to get a fine ) it was clear what the speed is. Then it goes to 80 after the Grancia turnoff.

So looks like it was one of those mobile gray speed camera boxes, as right now there are no cameras on that stretch.

Whatever people say, that stretch of road is outside of build-out area so no idea why 60 is enforced there.
