Haarlem has the highest number of speed cameras in the Netherlands
Haarlem has the most speed cameras per 1.000 km of road
The analysis, which was undertaken by consumer rights lawyers Goldstein, found that Haarlem has 31,25 speed cameras per 1.000 kilometres of road - the highest number in the Netherlands. The national average is just 11,6 cameras per 1.000 km of road.
Just behind Haarlem is Nijmegen. “Nijmegen stands out,” Goldenstein project manager Jude Leinstra told the AD. “It is much smaller than Rotterdam, The Hague or Eindhoven and yet it has the equivalent of 30,12 speed cameras per 1.000 kilometres of road.”
Amsterdam has a below-average number of speed cameras
On the flip side, the Dutch capital Amsterdam actually has a below-average number of speed cameras installed across the city. The city has just 6,8 speed cameras per 1.000 kilometres of road. Of the cities with over 50.000 inhabitants, only The Hague had a more than average number of cameras at 19,18 per 1.000 kilometres of road.
Still curious where the city you’re least likely to get caught speeding is? Zoetermeer. Here, there are just over two speed cameras per 1.000 kilometres of road!
