Speed cameras begin to ticket nation’s drivers

The new digital speed cameras began issuing tickets Sunday, following a month-long dry run. The Israel Police is keeping its ambiguity about the speed at which the fines will kick in, or if it will offset the threshold depending on the number of tickets issued.

“I cannot say at what speed we will begin enforcement,” Traffic Police Cmdr. Meir Or told Army Radio on Sunday. “It is quite possible that we will enforce different speeds at two different sections of a road.”

Last month, the Traffic Police conducted a pilot of the new speed cameras; 1,000 warnings were sent to drivers for speeding, and 250 warnings were sent for running a red light.
