Very confusing one site saying 90 and another saying 70.

One is Portuguese and the other isn't. If you obey the 70 as it is the lower number then you won't have a problem. :roll:

Thanks Farol for finding another site - it illustrates my point very nicely, how are we supposed to obey a law that between us has taken a fair amount of time to discover a simple fact a ie the speed limit that a speed trap is trying to enforce. We are still none the wiser, but I guess just don't exceed 70kph and hope that this slow enough.. :| :!: Brilliant

Maybe we have ourselves a Carvoeiro flasher with no teeth then ... :shock:

I would have thought that a penalty letter would have landed by now? Perhaps the camera is just set to flash for a period of time to act as deterrent and will be switched live with penalties after a month or two? Still does not solve the problem of what speed it is set at so everyone will just slow down to a snails pace to be sure.

Does that mean the locals are getting fined?
