      Kerala Speed Cameras

      1.You need to watch your speeds on long straights.
      They will be waiting just at the end of it, or just past a gradual corner.
      2.Watch yourself on long downhill sections. they will be waiting at the bottom.
      3.Sometimes, just after crests.
      4.Smooth road with large tree providing shade on the left side lane. they're going to be waiting underneath that tree.
      5. Wide banked corners with double yellows, they're just waiting for you to put one wheel out of line
      6. If you see well disciplined parking in a place with no shops and lots of people milling around with paper in their hands, slow down.

      I'm not saying slow down in situations like this, just be watchful, and make sure the cops are'nt around before you indulge yourself.

      Specific locations

      1.Around 2kms before attingal town. just before a bridge. Locals please give exact location, and where to start slowing down
      2. Northbound lane(towards edapally on NH47 byepass) after oberon mall(start coasting as soon as you pass Oberon)
      OR same bunch of cops on the south bound lane(towards palarivattom) around 50 meters before oberon(slow down well in advance- they'll catch you swinging out of a gradual curve)

      3.Large tree in front of Moham hospital, near thuravoor, NH47 4lane, northbound(towards cochin)
      will try and get an ODO or a GPS location.
      4.Road from Thevara ferry to willingdon island slow down as you come out of the curve, make sure cops arent there before you accelerate.

      found a group at Kakkanad, just after CSEZ, towards thrippunithra. They are really enjoying the ride in the a/c Tavera.

      Yes.. The red Tavera, with "Speed Tracer" stickers on both sides..
      And they had put the cam/device out on a tripod too.

      I think its the "PoovanPara " bridge after the Alamcode junction when you are going to Attingal from Kollam side. :character-oldtimer:

      You can start slowing down right after the turn before the bridge and then can have clear vision whether they are waiting there or not.If not then :auto-swerve:

      I have also seen them standing in 2 places between the kallambalam and Kollam.

      I hear there is a speed gun near Pallipuram - between Kazhakootam and Attingal on NH47 (Trivandrum-Kollam)
