With the first speed camera of a new type reported along the Phoenix-Beau Songes link road in a previous blog post, another blogger informed us of a new speed camera, this time at Paillotte, near the entrance to Candos.
This brings me to write this new post to map them altogether. This blog post will be updated whenever needed with locations of fixed speed cameras as well as those frequent regions where mobile cameras are usually placed.
As usual, you are the most welcomed to report any new fixed speed cameras. Pictures are the most welcomed. You can mail them at yashvin[at]awootar[dot]com.

The government had previously announced its intentions to introduce some dozens of cameras in the next months. Well, let’s follow up the installation of these cameras!
Don’t forget to smile 🙂
Most of the speed cameras as WORKING now.
Yashvin, i was at la gare victoria tonight about 7.30 pm and the camera at the motorway flashed about 6- 7 time at cars, what i mean to say is that many of the cameras installed are already operational, and the flash they are using seems way quite good since as mentionned in your post, the camera is next to royal college or something, how can it flash in such a way that the whole area experience it?
I bet many cars have been snapped by the speed cameras.
Very often there is a mobile camera next to the steel barriers that you have between the motorway and Victoria station, or sometimes behind the parapet wall which is a little bit closer to the Caudan roundabout. It must be a very good spot to flash people as this is a straight part of the motorway with a speed limit of 60 km/h only.
Do police officers use mobile cameras about 7.30 pm?
Yes, they do. (I was caught.) Unless when it’s raining perhaps. 🙂
Lol. You mean that the flash (midway between the flyover and Royal Poet Louis) has a very huge flashing effect?
not so huge flashing effect but imagine, at victoria station abt 7.30 experienced the flash for like more than 7 times and the flash was like more than a 100 watt bulb 😛
Those flashing thingy will blind someone! and cause a massive accident.
Just heard on the tv that the new speed cameras are of the Truvelo brand, made in South Africa. They will be operational in 2 weeks.
You made some typing mistakes in the Gokoola/L’amitier description.
They installed new cameras at Camp Garreau, Central Flacq, between Indian Oil Filling Station and new Flacq Winners Supermarket.
Google maps coordinates:-20.202662,57.718874
Thank you. I will add this new one tonight
Very often there are routine checks on the Sodnac link road between the B2 “Palma Road” and Nehru Road (just in the middle of both).
And occasionally there are Hand Radar checks after Geoffroy Road and before Beaux Songes.
Thanks, I will update accordingly.
Are these cameras supposed to be active now? My wife got flashed the other night…
Prepare Rs 2000 lot laner pou Mr Navin
I’m more 2 wheels than 4 wheels. I just bought a Suzuki GSXR 750 and i can’t ride 60 mph everywhere. These cameras deserve to be crushed.Terre Rouges – 3 lane, 80kmph. RIDICULOUS BIZIN FER RODAGE PARTOU KAN ROULE DANS SA PAYS LA>MAIS GOVT LA KAN LI ROULER…… 110KMPH MINIMUM POU NOUS 80KMPH MAX SOME TIMES 90… lolz
i have seen some were than there have to speed cameras in a very short distance what are they doing O.o
zot kav kone to loto par registre bane loto – zot check to mark loto ek so couleur
A suggestion to enrich the debate:
let’s place on the same google map the position of SPEED HUMPS…
In another map and post? 🙂
That will demand high contribution from readers, without that, the map will be useless.
On the SAME map, but with a different colour/shape.
Just to show to the world how proud we are to have the record number of passive policemen (mind you: this is actually the technical name of speed-breakers abroad) on such a tiny island.
Now, the Eurange voice, say with me:
Le paradis. Maintenant avec 20 cameras, et bientot 140.
Et 3,000 ‘humps’!
La vie change, avec Dodoland.
Enn zour bizin craze tout sa bann speed camera la .. soit peinture zot ! Sa kantiter camera la lor sa ti la grain lentil Maurice la ? Fouf ! Ena beizer ladans !
More places where police use a mobile detector: Ripailles (the slope with sugarcane on both sides), Quartier Militaire (opposite the football ground – did not notice them here since the speed limit went from 40 to 60), Providence (I don’t know where, but it’s quite frequent).
okay, I will add them!
