The cameras doesn,t work , if you see them they are broken. BUT especially through summer season there are quite frequent police check points by on the spot police cars that they are equipped by either hand used speed meters or cameras on their dashboard. Most common pattern is that one car without police badges on it is parked sideways, measures the speed of the cars and in about half or one km after is the conventional police car stopping and fining you. Or if it,s the cars with the on board speed cameras, gets a nice pic of you which you receive after a while.Most common places of the checking point are on any exit/entry of the national road where the speed is usually 60 or 70 km, that as you know there are too many "junctions". The top speed of the road is 90 km anyway. The road itself as you know is not in the condition that it should be, so no point of going much faster than the speed limits, especially when you are on a holiday trip here and if you don,t know the road. 60-70 on the curved parts or 100 km/h on the straight lines that are not through a densed tourist area as Kavros for example, are quite good and decent speeds that keeps you safe and police worried free. When wet, go even slower. Another tips that helps as all: when you are driving and being followed by another car that wants to overtake you DON,T panic. When you find a part of straight road, just go a bit to the right, not on the rails, and the other driver would overtake you. Most visitors cause the are feel pressured, they try to speed up more than they would like to go on straights and as a result they are breaking harder and more than it needs at the next corner. THAT doesn,t work out. So just go on your temp and give a little space without changing speed whenever you think there,s a chance of being overtaken. And finally don,t try to overtake yourself because the car in front starts an overtake on the second in front car. I have about 40 Newton kgs of torgue, so i would have finished my overtake when you would just be starting yours with a rented car of 1200cc and 15 to 20 Newton kgs of torgue. Bottomline, drive as YOU think it,s safe and don,t mind about that crazy local basta$#× that they are hitting the horn or flashing you their headlight so that you move over.
