Here is a first. They are going to reduce the number of speed radars in Switzerland. Finally some people have been using their brains and realize that radars are great moneymakers, but they also cost money. Radars need to be maintained, repainted and when vandalized, they need to be restored. Plus they use electricity and broadband.

According to the Swiss authorities, the number of speeding tickets issued has been dropping significantly, from 60,000 cars and motorcycles in 2009, to 43,000 in 2011 and 29,500 during 2013. Therefore the revenue coming from many radars does not justify maintaining them, so they are to be removed.

Radar Swiss

The exact number of radars to be axed is not known, but the bigger cities will continue with their money-making machines radars.

Now, if other European countries (particularly France) could take note. This is the way it's done.
