    Default Speed Camera's in Scotland

    Driving south out of Edinburgh on the A1 early hours of the morning on sunday. I was flashed twice by a forward facing speed camera that was on the other side of the road i.e one that was set up to snap from behind, should you be driving on that side of the road.

    I thought you could only get flashed from behind, The ruddy thing as good as blinded me for a few seconds too

    Can a conviction be obtained this way?

    You can't be done for speeding towards a Gatso, even if it flashes.Truvello cameras take a full frontal and these are digital and dont flash

    You should be fine mate im near 100% sure if its a GATSO they can only measure speed moving away from them some have surface markings on both sides of the road to catch speeding motorists . There are speed detection devices that can measure your speed head on, but GATSO is not one of them iirc

    I maybe wrong though but have a look on some speeding forums and keep within speed limits

    Agree with Bigmac on the forward facing thing I have found that as the cameras are at the best and usually only overtaking points it is generally intended to catch the unwary doing a sneaky pass.

    Put another way if in 28 days you have not heard anything all is legally fine too!

    You definitely won't be done for it. I intentially make the Gatso's flash on the A1 going the other way to entertain myself. Its even better if a car is passing going the other way at the same time I've done it lots and never got a ticket.
