ok guys , let's review what we know :grin:

Jumeriah (Mina Rashied ~ Soufouh Signal ) 70 and catches at 81
Soufouh ~ JBR 80 and catches at 91

SZR (Wafi Mall/ or abit earlier ~ Marina Mall ) 100 catches at 121
SZR (Marina Mall ~ Seih Elsho3eb) 120 and catches at 141

Dubai ~ Abu Dhabi Rd. (Seih Sho3eb ~ entrance of Abu Dhabi ) 120 and catches at 161
"except the starnge look fixed radar just after al Raha mall catches at 141 i got it 2 times"

Emirates Rd. (Abu Dhabi ~ entrance of Shj.) 120 catches 141

Emirates Rd. ( Shj ~ Ajman ) 100 catches 121
"but there is only 1 radar in this area just after (Wasset/Ajman) blue board"

Emirates Rd. (Ajman ~ RAK) 120 catches 140
"except for a certain mountain curves area which i don't know its name it's 80 and catches 91"

P.S
- Watch out for any white Nissan xtrail / grey mazda 6 station parked on the right side of a highway
- also watch out for any parked car on the side of the highways , usually they use it to put a mobile radar in front of it (ex. the grey golf that is being parked in emirates rd. towards dubai had been parked there for over 3 months)

i got a snooper 5s-r detector which mostly works with mobile radars / guns radars and fujirah/RAK/UMQ fixed radars, have been trying for almost 3 months now.

If I remember correctly, there was a Mazda 6, grey coloured, always parked near the bridge that exactly leads you to Festival city. I saw a cop come out of it and once I saw a flash too coming from it.

Hopes this helps :$

Wrong.
Jumeirah beach rd catches at 91. and at the end, (beach road to Diyafah/BurDubai direction, it catches at 100 for the last 2 cameras. Tested. [Tested again, Caught at 100, throughout Beach rd]

Souf - JBR catches at 101.


And about the yellow side of the radar lenses, they are onto us and have replaced almost all yellow lenses now with a crystallised white lens to mimic the working side. its still very obviously different from the working side since its very opaque. If you have a good eye you can easily skip through the opaque ones like you did with the yellows. They still don't work.

beach road cameras flash at 100. tested. on all the radars. sorry for the late reply @_@ but damn! 100! that '70' on the board is very misleading.

At the start of SHZ rd, the first 2 radars are both aimed at one direction: DXB-AD direction. Meaning they both flash you from this side and they both don't from AD-DXB.

If anyone doesn't know by now, on SHZrd, there is an x-trail radar right under the exit-bridge which takes you directly inside Mall of the Emirates. It is in such a blind spot, nearly impossible to avoid getting flashed if you see it while over-speeding.

There's one more further ahead, but easy to spot.

AD-DXB direction, xtrail radar is right next to one of the first metro stations. They are in the same locations almost daily.

Business bay crossing / AlKhail rd:

Dubai-AD direction, Occasional xtrail camera right before the first overhead bridge, easily noticeable.

AD-Dubai direction, Before that same bridge, hidden behind those big gay shrubs. Very hard to notice, since the camera itself is out there on a tripod. there is no xtrail. Seen many ppl get flashed by it.

Heading Dubai direction, Al Khail road, before the roundabout (the one which if you go left, takes you to MoE, Lulu hypermarket etc.) COD-camera (Cylinder of Doom) is hidden behind a few short bushes on the RIGHT side of the road. (no idea why they would put such an expensive radar there moreover making its purpose useless)

Other than looking like a prop from the terminator, CODs flash both sides of the road and at all lanes (unlike its yellow/white lensed counterparts which very rarely flashes you if you are at the right-most lane)

This is what we know so far:

SHZ rd. limit = 120

After Marina mall = 140

New limit in AD highway is now 140. There is only one cam that still lets you pass at 160 but its not worth the gamble. Final radar on AD highway, flashes at 120! (right after the Maqta bridge exit, before the KHalifa bridge) Its a considerably smaller camera than the rest.

Emirates rd. highway, from the beginning of the roundabout on Al Khail, all the way till the end of Emirates rd. (the roundabout at RAK): limit = 140

Jumeirah bch road, From the big flag at Diyafah, all the way 'til JBR, limit = 100.

Airport Tunnel, surprised many people still don't know this yet, limit = 100.

I cannot stress this point enough: THERE IS NO RADAR IN DUBAI THAT FLASHES BELOW 100.

Everything written here has been tested by myself. MANY MANY times.

not sure after passing sharjah though.. but from Jebel ali to al ghusais.. up to 159kph no flashes

Someone should map them with GPS coordinates, and keep it updated.

Really the Whole length? I've been using beach rd everyday for 2 years and have never dared to go over 81 :P and weird how i see nobody going faster... or even if they do, they brake hard to get under 80 when theres a radar.. can any more people verify that its really 100 (Only if you have actually tested it yourself!) :grin:

I've crossed those radars several times at 90, never knew the limit was 100.
Thanks for all the info Siju.

Beach Road is 100? For real? I was always at 81 but then the times I accidentally happened to go over 81/90 without realizing and it never flashed! Can anyone verify recently Beach Road still 90? or 100?

Airport Tunnel flashes at 100 too, just an FYI for everyone who slows down to 80 and hogs lanes as soon as soon as they enter the Tunnel, as if Dhahi Khalfan is watching them.

Are you talking about the road that goes through National Paints roundabout, passes Tasjeel etc.? Because thats the road i'm talking about and i have got flashed at 141 there. Or are you talking about the road which has 2 radars right next to each other, aimed at either side of the road?

About bch rd., every time i am there i am at 100 now. and ppl are starting to catch on :p
as if Dhahi Khalfan is watching them.
LOL!
