I don't think they are illegal but it is illegal to publish any data from them it's against their data protection laws.slightly off topic, Dash Cams are illegal in Portugal
The Germans and probably Austria won't allow Google Street View because of data protection law.I don't think they are illegal but it is illegal to publish any data from them it's against their data protection laws.
The place where it's really illegal is Austria, First offense €10,000 fine 2nd offense o€25,000.
I have an old, slightly broken action cam mounted on the dash for filming roads, I use a couple of go-pro's on my motorbike. I have only ever been hassled in border/customs areas and once by the military in Maroc. I never knew that anyone made dash cams illegal, when you consider how many smart phones are in circulation it seems a bit out of date. PS. I thoroughly recommend using one in Italy, I had a driver attempt to pull out in my path in Tivoli, I saw his eyes move to the camera and he stopped immediately. In Sicily on a Friday evening when a group of young girls saw the camera, they started dancing & acting the fool.There's that Grey line again! Read about this ridiculous situation years ago, even had questions then.
Its not illegal to own one, but you cant use it?
I understand the the Austrian Data protection Issue...just about, but surely the walking tourists are filming everywhere they go in Austria, try and get the Chinese to obey those data protection laws.
Its illegal to use one...when? As evidence of an accident, or to upload footage on to a public website like you tube, or simply to store your own travel footage?
Wonder why?, surely it can only be a useful tool in a determining blame/cause in a fatal accident situation, or maybe even a robbery in some instances.
Doesn't make sense to me.
I wont even mention Drone lawsBet they are instantly shot down, and the owner is hung!
But it not a camera detection device on a Sat Nag its a database of camera locations or danger areas and the device warns you you are approaching one...In the countries that are hell bent on screwing us for speeding and I am not in any way defending drivers who break the speed limit. Even goodie goodies can get caught and lets face it the only reason we use a camera detection devise is because we don't want to pay a fine. Anyway my question is do the police have some kind of electronic gadget telling them you're using a camera detector or dash cam or do they rely solely on visual observation.
