- Do speed cameras always "flash"
Fairly sure I was doing 35-37mph (I know the spedo is bang on accurate upto about 60) through a camera first thing this morning. Didn't see a flash, and know they usualy dont go off untill 36 (30mph+10%+3mph) have I got away with it? Or does the flash only go off at night?
And before I get flamed the road in question was about 30m between a roundabout where I pulled out from a side road and a 40 limit, and it wasn't untill I passed the camera that it occured to me that the sign reads 30 in the other direction 🙁Posted 8 years agochelaMember
I had to go on a speeding workshop the other month and IIRC the guy told us that of the 40something cameras in the North East (Northumbria Police area I guess) only something like 12 are operational at any one time.
I thought the margin of error was 10% + zero mph. I seem to recall some people being on that speeding course for doing 35mph in a 30, so it mustn't be 10% + 3mph.Posted 8 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I checked the spedo against a GPS to be on the safe side a few months back, the car's 30 years old so presumably someones calibrated it properly rather than relying on BL to have done it properly in the 70's!
I know my housemate had an awareness course the other week so hopefully it'll be that if it does come through.
Anyone else think Berkshire Police are a bit camera happy? To get from the GFs house (Wokingham) to Reading town center is probably 6 miles, yet has enough cameas to invalidate my licence twice over and still have points to spare!
Then again my housemates drive like twunts so if I get points and they dont I'll be peeved off.Posted 8 years ago
