How can I know if that piece of junk is a traffic RADAR or a just a streetlamp?
Type 6 – Hidden radars
Temporarily placed on tripods or placed in standard no-sign cars both circulating or crouched for a more fruitful haunting.
As there are so many hidden/camouflaged RADARs (vehicles, vans, tripods, LASER guns, etc.) it is worth you watch the following pictures and read the corresponding comments.
Type 6A (MULTANOVA-6F model)
Multanova is the most versatile RADAR model because it can be used in porches/panels and booths. They can be identified by a black conical antenna.
There is static version for standard no-signs cars as well as for tripods:
Type 6B (AUTOVELOX model)
It loos like a DVD player, with a pair of “eyes” through which the measurement LASER rays come out. The “black beast”, because nowadays they’re undetectable. Good news ist that they’re supposed to be sensitive to rain (but I wouldn’t be confident in that).
In addition to the static closet version there are also camouflaged variants.
Both in tripod:
and in a car. As the working method is based on a pair of infrared LASER rays, when installed inside cars, windows must be down; otherwise glass would prevent proper operation. That’s a good trick: if you notice a car in the berm with a window down, just brake! (better brake every time you see a car in the berm, just in case).
Type 6C (LASER guns)
Latest model are LASER guns. They are under implementation process. Están en fase de implantación. Some units have already been procured, mainly by city councils. Its crystal clear that at collection time everyone and his brother is there. They’re operated directly by officers, both with his bare hands or on a tripod:
Type 6D (DUO system)
It has the capability to operate both at daylight or night, as well as under adverse weather conditions. It allows the “Guardia Civil” (Spanish traffic officers) selecting almost every shooting angle: frontal, rear and lateral by means of its positioning mechanism, able to move 360º horizontal and 240º vertical.
That “thingamajig” sticking out of the cones, for clarification. It grows, turns, records you at daylight or night, under the rain… you’re definitely lost!:
A number of vans brightly with the DGT signs, temporarily lent by the DGT to city councils.
But, under this appearance, a whole fine artillery is masked. RADAR, video camera, this is, all ingredients to sour our day:
