The system is not very accurate, sometimes there is a different of more then 10 km between the three measurements

Nope, they are not, especially when it is all about safety and with tax payers' money. They flew 1,200 hours per year between 2013-2016 and I think they just added a couple more to the fleet. They are especially deployed during main Holidays (Holy Week, Christmas, National Holidays etc.) and Summer months. They have 8 helicopters distributed throughout the country with the tracking/speed measuring cameras that cost $180,000 each (helicopter cost on top of that). They measure speed and also watch for other infractions.

You will also be surprised how much they spend in a simple laser/radar unit (about $45,000 each for cheap ones La Policía Local prueba un nuevo radar láser para multar la velocidad or up to $80,000 each for the expensive ones La DGT compra 43 nuevos radares | Seguridad | Motor | elmundo.es) or the almost undetectable, $60,000, Multaradar C.
Wow! That's ALOT of money to recoup, but doubt it would take long.
Similar thing happens in Australia. If you travel from South Australia, through to Perth, you drive through the outback. Nothing for miles. 3 day drive easily even if you floor it. Helicopters monitor speed, but have heard it's timed from point to point, but observed from above. Maybe Western Australians can confirm this?
