At this stage, the equipment will control the average speed, compulsory insurance OCTA, roadworthiness and payment of road tolls.
The average speed control system is an automatic measuring system that measures speed based on the time taken to pass a certain section of the road. At the beginning and end of the section, equipment shall be installed to record the times when the vehicle enters and leaves the road section and to calculate the average speed at which the section has been crossed. If the average vehicle speed recorded by the system is higher than the maximum permitted at this stage, the owner will receive a penalty.
The average speed control system will be imposed on a total of 16 sections of the country's roads this year.
