Yeah I know. You can't even have them stored in your GPS, even if they're off.

But what are the chances of getting caught?

Especially if your TomTom is set to, lets say, Polish. And instead of "speedcameras" the list of cameras positions is named, lets say, "SzwajcarskaPolicjaMożeNamSkoczyć"

That'll work

But do they really check that?

Weird, here speed cameras are thought(well, should be) to be a prevention and the list of them is on the offcial road autohority webpage.

I don't think so. But if you are caught, I assure you that fines are elevated...and guaranteed.

Well, I have them on my TomTom. I never heard from someone that they have been controlled for Speedcam POIS...

There is somewhere a SDK Mod, you can push one Button and all Speedcam Pois removed within seconds


Just want to share Pics from the "A1/A6/E25/E27", i made yesterday near Bern. It was Jam direction Bern.

Building all road projects would cost 100 billions CHF: http://www.actif-trafic.ch/content/view/285/262

Today I went for the first time over the Gotthard pass instead of the tunnel. It was really amazing, stunning views and great landscape. In my opinion one of the nicest passes in Switzerland to drive over. And the road is in very good condition, the first few km's on the south ramp are even a motorroad (although with many tight curves).
If you don't stop it takes about 30 minutes longer. I can really recommend this to everyone heading to holidays if the wheater is nice and if you're not in a hurry.
I will post some pics tomorrow.

It's probably not so much fun in the holiday weekends. I drove up the Brünig pass in nearly stationary traffic, very exhausting drive.

That's possible. Today was light traffic (I went from south to north) and one time a bus had to wait to take a curve until no other car was on the other lane. So I guess a small traffic jam can build up very fast on theses mountain roads.

Anyway, since I'm bored the first pic:


High quality version:

Check the high quality version for the details.
You can see the A2 motorway just before the tunnel. There is a small queue in front of it, to the left of the lake.
You can also see how the motorroad to the pass branches off the motorway (where the queue starts) and an access point of the motorroad on the lower left corner.

It's different with the Gotthard Pass, because the road is much better.

You don't get it, it doesn't matter how many curves there are, but just because you have to stop, get onto the brakes, releasing them, drive a few meters, and repeat the whole sequence. Doesn't matter because of the curves, but because of the ascend...

I've driven over the Gotthard Pass several times when there were long queues before the tunnel, and the traffic was always free-flowing.
