Hello, I'm having problems translating this message. If anyone can translate this for me I would greatly appreciate it.
siccome sarei interessato all'oggetto vorrei sapere se rileva gli autovelox di cui dispongono ormai tutti i comuni e che vengono usati per risanare il proprio bilancio nascondendosi dietro cassonetti,cespugli etc. poi ti mandano il verbale a casa !! (per meglio capirci quelli che ti fanno la fotografia) anticipatamente ringrazio

well, I can try but it's written in very bad Italian
since I'm iterested to the object I'd like to know whether it finds/checks autovelox (sorry, dunno how to translatethis, these are the machines commonly used by police to check the speed of cars in the streets...)that now every city has and that are used to balance the accounts by hiding them behind waste bins (I know that's not the right translation but can't find a better word) and bushes etc... then they send you a fine (the ones taken with photos) thanks in advance-
I hope it makes some sense to you...to me it does very little...=o/Carla

The person who wrote that Italian text is asking for information about a device that hopefully (for him) is able to detect autovelox. As Leo said, Autovelox is an automatic device used by the police to check car speed. It can identify the car owner by taking a photo of the car’s license plate. Then the car owner gets a ticket for speeding.
You have to know that Italians drivers are very indisciplined people, they often break speed limits…so they sometimes try and cheat those autovelox devices in order to avoid getting fines… :D
I hope that my explanation makes sense to you… please correct my English mistakes :)

grazie mille leo & carla!
I guess I didn't understand the part where he spoke of garbage bins and bushes. Your law enforcement hides cameras behind garbage bins and bushes?
How much are these fines?leobloom

eheh...yep..so that drivers don't see them and slw down just few metres before to avoid the fine...=o)...even though there are websites where people tell the other drivers where these autovelox are... actually some of them are shown with a road sign... but the most of them are hidden...and yeo, also behind bushes and bins
dunno prices coz i've never had a fine! Return to the ITALIAN Archive
