Belgium published their speeding tickets summary for 2013. And they got a whammy. Between 2012 and 2013, Belgium installed segment radars (those pesky radars that are placed in between two locations and calculate your average speed), and they are paying off.

The segment radar installed on the E40 motorway probably made a record number of fines, maybe enough to get into the Guinness World Book of Records. In 2012, 46,665 speeding fines were issue. 2013, after the segment radar was installed in March 2013, some SEVEN times the number of speeding fines were issued; 337,150. Talk about a windfall! Unfortunately, around 50% of the speeders are foreign registered cars and motorcycles, so no or little money coming in from these vehicles.

During all of 2013, the authorities in Belgium handed out 1,456,073 speeding fines, the result of a combination of the new segment radars and the good old fashion speed radar. That's an 17% increase over 2012.

So when riding your motorcycle in Belgium, be aware of the radars, especially the segment radars. You've been warned.
