Police radars in use in The Netherlands (updated 02-01-2021):
- Multaradar CT, mobile (K band, FM modulated non continuous wave, low power; hard to detect but can be distinguished because of it’s “unique” signal).
Since 2015 ALL radar traps are done with Multaradar CD’s, later on in 2016 ALL radar traps are exchanged for Multaradar CT’s. So both fixed and mobile speed traps are done with 1 type of radar. Except for;
- Gatso T series (only fixed locations at traffic lights). RT3 /RT4 radar K-band ISM planar patch-array.
- Peek (works only with induction loops at traffic lights).
- Traffipax (works only with induction loops at traffic lights).
The most speed traps measures the speed from behind (receding traffic) but front measurements are also permitted and possible.
Other speed traps in use in The Netherlands:
- Section Controls, on the highway and some provincial ways since 2020.
- LTI Ultralyte lidar gun.
- LTI Truspeed (with VPR) lidar gun.
- Kustom Prolaser 4 lidar gun.
- Almost gone, but still in use somewhere: Prolaser 3, Jenoptik Laser Patrol, Robot Traffipatrol XR.
- Mobile “smart” cameras to automatically take pictures if you hold your mobile phone in your hand while driving.
- Not in use yet: Unmarked police cars who will measure your speed (radar) and take a photo (while they are driving too).
