JapanWhen the camera records the speed exceeding the allowed limit, a policeman will rush to the road to block the offending vehicle.
In Japan, the speed limit allowed in the city is only 60 km/h. Off the highway, the figure rises to 100 km/h. Speed violations are not uncommon.
To catch drivers speeding, Japanese police use speed cameras and are often placed in hidden corners, avoiding the remote detection of road users. When there is a violation, one or two policemen will run out to the street holding a stop sign, block the vehicle and guide the gate.
Usually, vehicles traveling more than 20 km/h over the speed limit on highways and 15 km/h on other roads will be allowed to pass. In 2020, a total of 1.16 million speeding tickets were issued across Japan, and only 199 of these were violations of 0-15 km/h above the legal limit.
As in Okinawa Prefecture, the police do not issue fines for driving more than 0-20 km/h over the allowed speed limit. Meanwhile, Toyota police have recorded a total of 68,963 tickets in 2020, and only 7 of these have exceeded 0-20 km / h over the limit.
The fines for speeding violations in Japan will depend on the speed limit. The minimum fine is 80 USD for driving over 0-15 km/h and the highest is 308 USD.
