You got to love the advances in technology, specially for motorcycles. In The Netherlands, the government are placing a new generation speed radar on the roads. These highly advanced radars however require a sensor inside the road surface itself. The sensor "feels" when a vehicle is driving over it and sends a signal to the radar to measure the speed. If the speed is too fast, a photo is taken, and you must buy the photo of your vehicle for a very high price....

Radar Road Sensor

But here's the screamer. The sensor is based on magnets, in other words, the vehicle must have a decent amount of metal onboard to "wake up" the sensor. But modern day motorcycle have very little metal. Most of the motorcycle is carbon, aluminium and plastics, and therefore can not alert the sensor that it is passing. In other words, recent motorcycles can ride away without a speeding ticket.

Belgium have identical radars, and therefore identical problems with motorcycles.

Mind you, to be able to escape a speed radar in Belgium or The Netherlands, you need to a) have a new motorcycle that has a nonmetal fairing, and b) ride in front of one of the new radars. The old ones will catch you... so I guess better not speed. But, it's funny nevertheless.
