There’s nothing quite like coasting along a beautiful Croatian road with mountainous or sea views and absent-mindedly putting your foot down a bit too much. There’s also nothing quite like knowing a hidden speed camera has snapped your license plate and you can now expect a fine of an unknown amount to slip into your mailbox sometime soon.
The sight of an envelope containing a fine has to be one of the most depressing things that can be found in your mailbox aside to gas bills or anything that says ”Tax Office” on it. That being said, dangerous driving is still an enormous issue across the country, and any deterrent is a good one.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, there have been some brand new Croatian speed cameras placed in sometimes rather obscure and unexpected locations along the country’s motorways for a long time now. But you may not have known that there is a map of all of Croatia that reveals precisely where those speed cameras are located. Some of them are in places you really, really wouldn’t expect them to be.
The map was made by no less than Google, and it is now part of the service of that company, which has so far informed mobile phone users about delays at borders, traffic jams caused by a large number of vehicles on the road at the same time, road works or a traffic accident.
Now the same Google service is providing its users with very valuable information on the locations and exact positions of Croatian speed cameras and speed limits along various roads throughout the entire country. The move will likely be beneficial to many foreign visitors to Croatia this summer should the tourist season improve as the epidemiological picture continues to do the same.
