Blue speed camera control pillars for truck tolls

The new blue pillars flash?
Control pillars for the truck toll

Are the surveillance bodies relying on new speed cameras? Or what about the new blue columns appearing on the streets? We enlighten you.

Anyone who drives past one of the numerous new pillars set up at the roadside these days looks spellbound at the speedometer and instinctively applies the brakes. Have i been flashed? I was too fast?

We can give the all-clear for all unsettled bikers. The blue columns, which are strongly reminiscent of speed camera towers in terms of shape and size, are also being erected on federal highways exclusively to control the truck toll that will apply from July 1, 2018. Anyone who passes here too quickly is not measured and not flashed. Quote from the Federal Ministry of Transport: “The simple column structures on the roadside fit better into the image of the more rural federal roads. They are colored in such a way that they cannot be confused with speed controls. “

Toll Collect

The federal government wants to control the truck toll on federal highways with around 600 blue pillars.

When the new towers are set up across the board, there will be around 600 pillars along the main roads. The pillars should then take on the same functions as the toll bridges on the motorways.

When a vehicle passes a control column, an overview, a side view and a license plate image are created. The column compares the data with the data from the Toll Collect data center and detects whether a valid booking has been made and whether all information has been entered correctly. If the booking is correct, the images will be deleted immediately. Only data from vehicles that are suspected of not having paid the toll or that it has not been paid correctly are forwarded to the control center.

The blue columns that have already been set up are currently still running in a political project to collect data and experience.
