More radars planned in bid to shorten tailbacks on D1 motorway

Increased speed monitoring will be introduced on the Czech Republic’s most important motorway, the D1, next year, reported on Friday. A tender process is already underway for new radars to be installed at toll gates on seven sections of the busy motorway, the news site said. The minister of transport, Dan Ťok, says the controls should curb speeding on the D1 and thus help shorten tailbacks; he said 80 percent of tailbacks were caused by violations by drivers.
