Speeding in Azerbaijan

Postby rudolf » Thu May 17, 2018 7:07 pm

Hi fellow travelers,

I am looking for urgent advice.
I came today from Seki to Baku and enjoyed the nice scenery along the Caucasian mountains and well paved roads. Unfortunately, I only realized somewhere before Baku that those "radar" signs next to the road actually refer to cameras above the street. (Yes, I know...)
Since I maintained a constant 100-110km/h throughout the ride (including 60 & 90 limits), I am worried that there might be a huge accumulated fine piling up.

My actual plan was to head for Quba the next two days and take the ferry to Turkmenbashi afterwards. Now, I am considering taking the ferry as soon as possible, fearing that they might see in the system that I have pending fines when I try to exit the country too late.

Therefore, some questions to the community:

1. Has anybody travelling through Auerbaidjan ever received a radar speeding ticket?

2. How long did it take and how did you get it?

3. Can anybody confirm that those radars only take front view photos? (which would give them a hard time tracking me down with my motorbike)

Thanks a lot & travel safely (and obey the rules!)

1. yes
2. a police car chased us shortly after the radar caught us and pulled us over. We were also stopped at the next checkpoint.

Actually, I was speeding as well on some parts and I never received a ticket. Locals told me that foreigners will not be fined and there is definitely no check or entry in the system when leaving the country.
