    Angry Switzerland bans talking about speed cameras!

    For a few years now Switzerland has banned the use of speed camera location info on GPS, now it seems you must'nt tell your friends if you see one! I found this on the Net;

    "People who reveal the location of Swiss speed cameras on the internet face fines of up to 10,000 francs ($10,700), under new laws.

    Like rebellious drivers everywhere, Swiss motorists have been using the internet to stay ahead of the police. Facebook group ‘Mobile radar reports: Switzerland’ has about 14,000 users. But a new law passed this week by the Swiss parliament will make it illegal to share information online about the location of speed cameras.

    With 91 votes in favour and 72 against, the National Council approved the ban on speed camera warnings. The ban will come into effect in 2013 at the earliest."

    Ah, Switerland, land of the free [sic]

    Oh boohoo.
    Obey the laws = No problem.

    People who speed should have their license revoked and their car sold at auction. No compensation.

    Speed camera detectors are illegal in Switzerland and cannot be carried in the car. GPS/SatNav/Smartphone sytems which warn of and display the position of speed cameras must be disabled.

    Good luck with that!

    Perhaps the PoPo should just pay for all the speeding fines themselves out of all the Nazi gold still held by Credit Swisse.

    Less rules means more compliance; it makes sense!

    In Australia, they just legislated away any upper speed limit in northern Australia!

    Finally the rev limiter gets a shine...
