The advantage of the new portable cameras, which already monitor speeding, is that they can capture multiple tapes at once. In 2017 stationary and mobile cameras recorded 490,000 violations. However, 97,000 were invalid due to the fact that it was not possible to determine the car of the offender (about 1/5 of the detected violations were not sanctioned). The cameras recognize both Bulgarian and foreign numbers.
In 2017 new Traffic Police cameras will begin monitoring whether drivers have paid Third Party Liability insurance.
