Trunk road near Zvolen



Location: https://goo.gl/maps/rGGu1YCNcUt

After a storm (about 10 days ago) there was a little land slide, luckily no one was hit. And the road is still closed, due to cleaning and securing works on the hill.

Quick question about Slovak police controls on the road - what are those police vans doing by the side of the road? I've seen three today between Poprad and Svidnik. Are they mobile speed cameras, or are they just somewhere for police to work from while conducting normal speed controls with the radar guns?

The reason I ask is that I was going down some hill near Presov at about 103-4km/h and there was a van parked at the bottom of the hill - no sign of any police sitting in the van, and the van was parked in the opposite direction to me - so... can you tell me more, please?

No, these were clearly police vans - white with green (looking strangely German to me), and one of them had some equipment on the roof. The one that I saw had nothing on the roof though, and no-one was sitting in the front of the van.

They definitely had Policia on the vans too. But I wonder - were they carrying out speed checks, or was it more of a deterrent?

VW Transporters, these ones are usually used for checking trucks for eToll, or they are sent to traffic accidents. I wouldn't worry. They are more sneaky checking speed, usually with unmarked cars, or standing next to road (with cars hidden) using radar guns and stopping you right away.

Police vans

For 99% these police vans doesn't perform speed checks, they are dedicated to toll checks for trucks (vans with twin white cameras on the roof). The route 21 around Svidnik is easternmost N-S corridor on EU territory and heavily utilized by trucks. One notorious spot for toll checking van is around exit Voderady and dxit Červeník on D1 motorway. Slovak police performs speed check from passenger cars like Kia ceed, vw golf, and motorway department uses audi a4, skoda superbs and vw passat. Of course I can't exćude possibility of speed check from vans for 100% but these vans are designed to more serious tasks - fine for infraction of toll for truck is somewhere about hundreds of euros, ordinary speed infraction 20-30kmh is priced much lower 50-200 €.

Thank you both for your answers, that makes sense as to what they were doing in those locations.

I have to say one thing, I've never really driven on ordinary roads in Slovakia, and everyone is so...peaceful in SK. I actually had to check the speed limit at one point on the D1 because I was overtaking cars while at 130km/h on the cruise control.

It's actually difficult for me as I'm used to the madness of Polish roads and almost complete lack of enforcement. Still, I discovered the speed limiter function on my car today, so that helped!

Do the cars in Poland also take pictures, or do they just only stop speeders on the spot to fine them?

And it is not that mountainous again. €20 million/km are often prices for one tube tunnels in relatively normal geology.

I do, but this doesn`t justify such a high price.
