    No, but I'd hang my hat on 90% of the time there are. A couple I can think of on the A8, for instance, do not. Most of the tunnels will have the same sign as the one below but only a very few actually have the cameras for real.

    Two more things:

    In Asturias there are a couple of radar cars which all the taxi drivers know about. I shall text my taxi driver mate and see if he can enlighten me and will post on here for what it's worth. This is just going to have to be one of those "bad luck' ones. There are only 2-3 of these anyway. If you stick to my advice of not going above 150km/hr then the worst you will get on the A8 is a €100 fine.

    Lastly, if you have a TT rider, the camera updates come free. Make sure that you have traffic cameras for Spain loaded on it before you go. It's not a given. They are pretty good. I don't know about the NAV/Garmin but for half the price of one single low level fine, the subscription pays for for itself several times over. Well worth it in my opinion but in the case of the Garmin, make sure that it includes Spain.

    No, no, no

    HOT TIPS:

    1) Buy a 200hp supercharged Kawasaki and ride it like Arsey!

    There, NOW it's fixed.

    On a serious note

    Gonna start a thread about a fab APP my Taxi driver friend just recommended to me because I think it could do with a wider audience.
