Where to buy? Where can I find? How do I? Getting started.

Also distances in Finland are big and Helsinki there are too many red lights everywhere. I don't like it. A lot of time will be lost behind red lights.
No arguing about distances, but I haven't seen many times traffic lights that could show more green than they actually show. Maybe added green arrow here and there. Then again I prefer to do my business inside Kehä III with someone else driving, be it railroad engineer or cabbie.

I have a car with Estonian license plate and many times cameras have flashed, but I never gotten a ticket :D
Once I was driving fast with something like 110 km/h in 70 km/h area and camera flashed, but even for that one I never got a ticket :D :thumbsup:
Some of the cameras have flashed too close and blinded me, so I don't like these cameras. :thumbsdown:
And you want a pat on your back? Breaking the law isn't something to be proud of.

Actually yes you are right, but I was in a hurry at that time. 1 time I remember road was blocked with you cannot drive through signs in Helsinki to a certain harbour area, where you can get on a ship to Estonia. I didn't have any time so I just drive through that place and somehow got through(in 1 place all road was blocked, but I just drove to the sidewalk aroud it and back on the road), there was no police anywhere. Luckily managed to get on a ship right on time. There was no warning in the morning about that street being closed in the evening in Helsinki. I still remember it. Now when I drive back to harbour area in Helsinki then I never drive through that street, there is other way to come from other side. Yes, that was crazy.

Hi all,

Okay, so yesterday, on Kehä III, I was driving and had the cruise control set at 82 Km/hr. Exact, I know, since it is a digital display. There was a van, some company, called Jaa something that overtook from the right, and the camera flashed, at the exact moment when we were both in front of the camera.

Who gets the ticket? Now I am freaking out! :( Perhaps, I shouldn't have been driving at 82 on the left lane, but left it for those needing to go faster.

Where can I check this from please?
Nothing to worry about. The camera measures speed by calculating the time it takes for a vehicle to pass over two induction loops below the road surface. As such, the measurement is lane-specific, and the camera will record which sensor triggered it, along with the measured speed.

I drive on the camera-filled Kehä I every day, usually at 3-4 km/h over the limit (GPS speed) if traffic allows it, and I don't slow down upon approaching a camera. None of them have ever reacted to me, even the ones I've seen flash at someone else earlier. It's simply not enough of a difference to trigger them.

Accuses others of not reading.. but also tries to pass Kehä III as a single lane road to fit his nice little story.
The west-most 10 kilometres of Kehä III, from Espoo Centre to road 51, is indeed single-lane.

F*cking idiot. But yes, the flash is quite bright.

I was driving in 80 area for about 90 on Keha I, II or III. But the camera was under a bridge and didn't see it! And then it flashed suddenly.

Police has now a bit over 100 cameras and they just announced a deal for 150 new cameras. They will be using radar instead of the old induction loops so braking when you see the camera will be too late.

speed limits in some places are only 60, but they could be higher
roads are in better condition and better in Finland than in Estonia so I think speed limits should be a lot higher
but that is just my opinion

I think many of the 60km/h limits are there to keep buses running on time as they have right of way from the stop in 60km/h and under speed limits.

No, lowering the speed limits is a cheap way to try and make the roads safer (since Finland has the most dangerous roads of all Nordic countries). But it's a really short sighted and lazy way to try and achieve safer roads. Things like better junction design, road calming etc are far more effective but cost money and the roads in many cities are like something from 1950's England (Lauttasaari and its massively wide junctions and city roads please take a bow).
Often in Finland they can't even be bothered to put speed limit signs on the right side of the road and put it on the left side so it can share a metal pole with a sign there. Or they put "alue" under a round speed limit sign to save installing a new square speed limit sign (round and square signs having slight different meanings).

riku2, I think you have a point here
however between Hyvinkää and Järvenpää road is good and all the time almost straight and speed limit is only 60
not fair
road betwen Kerava and Klaukkala is S like snake with so much dangerous curves
fair speed limit yes 50-60

Curves aren't dangerous. I checked the first example with google maps and was agreeing with you: straight road, the bike path way away from main road... but then the path merged with road, bus stops, driveways... so yeah, I can understand that at the start from Hyvinkää one would like to drive 80km/h, but I wouldn't want people drive that fast when I'm merging from my yard to the road.

If you didn't go over the speed limit then you have nothing to worry about. I have been in the same situation too once, but I never got any ticket from that or nothing.

I have only seen once this year when Finnish police was measuring speed on Helsinki - Lahti highway
In years 2016 and 2017 I never saw them measuring speed.
