The German Federal Government’s amended traffic laws include a ban on sat navs from alerting drivers to the location of speed cameras.
Visordown.com reports that the country has strengthened its rules regarding speed camera warnings – it was already illegal to use detection systems in vehicles.
This means motorists travelling through or to Germany will need to manually disable the speed camera warnings in their sat nav or risk a €75 fine.
Speed camera location warnings on sat navs are permitted in Britain where the focus is on reducing speed at accident blackspots, and the view is that if people know the cameras are there they will slow down.
