    Default SPECS cameras.

    I have just gone over the QE2 bridge, on the M25 Dartford crossing at about 60mph.

    Just over halfway across I saw cameras on the gantry that I am fairly certain are SPECS cameras.

    Yes I was speeding and no I shouldn't have been ,but so were most other people.

    Does anyone Know if these cameras are active?

    Active? Yes. Enforced? Depends... And no, I am not a traffic (or any other sort of) cop...

    Are you sure they weren't ANPR cameras? The police use the Dartford crossing as a prime place to catch criminals crossing between Kent and Essex.

    Average speed cameras are on yellow gantries.

    Hi
    No they weren't on a yellow gantry but the camers were yellow and every gantry I passed had a battery of these cameras on them.

    Does this not rule out ANPR cameras?

    think with 'specs' they are always marked before you enter any section with them...

    They are average speed cameras on Kent side
    ANPR Cameras are only on a single gantry. Otherwise they would record the
    Same number plates several times. ANPR are smaller circular types and s lot work
    On Wi-Fi you will see s small black ariel on them

    Thanks for your replies.

    It looks like I have been done then.

    Do you know of any other Specs or GATSO cameras on the Kent/Essex part of the M25.
