The service is provided by a company called and for an annual fee of 40 euros, subscribers receive an SMS whenever there's a speed check in their area. gets the information from its own subscribers who are encouraged to send an SMS if they spot a speed check or camera site.

Although has been heavily criticized for providing such a service, the police is in fact quite possitive about it since it helps reduce the speed on the roads as well as reduce the time officers would otherwise spend writing tickets (apparently, they forgot that SMSing while driving is pretty dangerous and against the law).

The service is about to launch in England and Germany. 2005-2015 - Powered by Movable Type 3.31.
