Don't Speed on SLEX or NAIAX. Big Brother Is Watching You
Do you have a penchant for using expressways as an avenue to push your vehicle to its limit? If so, you might want to put this practice behind you, because redminer: the management team behind Skyway and NAIA Expressway (NAIAX) has cameras installed to keep speeding motorists in check.
South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) operator Manila Toll Expressway Systems Inc. speed cameras are installed along Skyway and NAIAX. Here's a screenshot of an unlucky Toyota Hilux getting caught for speeding. Look:
“Overspeeding recorded by our new speed cameras,” the company says. “Please observe the maximum speed limit: 100kph maximum for cars and SUVs. 60kph for buses and PUVs in #Skyway and 60kph maximum in #Naiax.”
By the look of the photo, the midsize SUV was traveling at 136kph—well above the 100kph speed limit for passenger cars. The cameras also appear to be more than capable of recording a speeding car’s license plate number. And, it seems they’ll be catching other violations, like swerving, as well:
So the next time your foot is feeling heavy on the accelerator, lay off. Remember: They’re always watching. Drive safe out there.
