L is for Location, and one of our strong suits. With 63 countries being covered by our Cyclops surveyors, we are fortunate enough to experience all sorts of climates and destinations.  

 Weather  

The coldest country we cover is Russia, however, we also cover Finland, Norway and Canada, which unsurprisingly get pretty cold too! Verkhoyansk and Oymyakon in the Sakha Republic, Russia, have experienced freezing cold temperatures of -67.8°C. 

In contrast, some of our surveyors experience some extremely hot temperatures in countries such as Bahrain, Qatar and the UAE. The highest reported temperature in Bahrain, was 47.6°C, in 2000. Although this isn’t the average temperature, with an average of 363.5 hours of sunshine in the summer months, avoiding the high temperatures can be challenging.  

Altitude  

Our database also consists of camera destinations in some of the highest areas. For example, a camera spotted in Austria with an altitude of 2136m. As well as, cameras in the lowest areas. 3m of altitude above sea level, cameras along the very picturesque Promenade de la Plage, Cagnes-sur-Mer, Provence – Alpes- Côte d’Azur. This destination currently holds number 1 spot in our database for lowest camera.  

Destination  

The red light junction on Devils Tower Road that leads immediately onto Winston Churchill Avenue, to go from Gibraltar to Spain, is known as one of the busiest junctions for planes. This means that for motorists you can be stuck here for some time waiting. Whilst you’re looking out at the passing planes, we’ve kept an eye on the road ahead for you. 

Remote areas don’t always mean no safety cameras, and here at Cyclops, we make sure that we are able to account for cameras wherever they may be. In South Africa, there is an average speed zone stretching around 75km between the two points on the R61, out of Beufort West.
