    I was double flashed on one of these years ago when speeding towards it (just about to leave a 30 zone to nat speed limit), never heard anything but maybe I was just lucky

    from wot little i do know i heard that they dont or shouldnt flash you if you are oncoming traffic as the flash can disorientate you and cause a accident

    Those fixed gatso's are rear facing cameras, I love to speed up when Im facing one so the driver going past it thinks he's been done.

    it was a gatso on one side of the road

    but there were markings on the other side of the road, is this to catch people on the wrong side
