couldent find any posts about this ,

i was driving down a road about a hour ago and i was going around a bend when all of a sudden there was a camara van with the back door open on my side, occupied.

question 1 ; do they get both sides of the road

question 2 ; what range do they record your speed

question 3 ; i did slow down reasonably to 30 as i drove nearer , i didnt slam on though as it was icey. would this help . was about 2lengths of a swimming pool away.

question 4 ; how could i get away with it , if it got me . :mad: :mad: :mad:

if it got you, ask for to see the calibration certificate for that day, sometimes works if they havent calibrated it.

Cant they record up to a mile or half a mile or something? And if there was no other cars around you speeding he will probably have aimed for you. You may be lucky if he was trying to catch some one else and you slowed down in time. Just wait the 2 weeks and just hope nothing happens

No they dont have to be marked vans, it is just a myth they can have cameras hidden or whatever if they catch you, you are caught

Apparently they only need to be marked if they are part of the road safety partnership scheme. Police can just pull up and whip out their lazer guns.

the camera vans have to be marked. however there is also normal speedtraps where it can just be a policeman with a speed gun stood anywhere.

however we're talking about the vans ;)

Its all f*cking Day light robbery if you ask me, im sure you they have plenty more to do than constantly bombard motorists with tickets etc. This kind of subject gets me angry :mad: lol, to do it in unmarked vans is completely unfair too.

I pay £110 a year for the privilege to drive on our lumpy, pot holed, suspension destroying tarmac known as british roads, also driving at the risk of being flashed by some sort of camera every 500 metres, the joy.....
