    Default Help ! M6 Thelwall Viaduct Today at 1640ish

    Just driven over the Thelwall Viaduct, road is a bit undulating and makes some of the motorway bridges almost impossible to see whilst driving.

    Just noticed a van camera van parked in the middle of a bridge and 4 tripods with cameras, one on each lane ....

    Would these be ANPR cameras or speed cameras?

    No sign of the patrol car up ahead to stop any ANPR cases?

    I was travellnig at 78-80mph on my car's speedo, hopefully actual speed was a bit less

    Cheers

    I would think at that speed you would be safe enough, your actual was probably around 75 which probably wouldn`t be a ticket..

    A lot of probably`s there but I reckon your safe enough

    Speed camera's are there on a regular basis, hopefully as Tommy says you'll be ok as 80 on speedo is probably only around 74-76mph

    There were 4 camera's - one covering each lane.

    There were no warning signs for Speed Check and it was impossiblw to see them in the distance because of the way the road dips and the bridges

    still hoping I am okay

    As said at 80 on your speedo you should be fine.

    I was told by a Safety Camera Partnership once that the national guidlines for speed limits are 10% + 2 mph. Which equates on a 70mph road to 79mph. Now, to be doing that your speedo would actually be reading 82-83(ish). (As checked on my sat nav with cruise on ). Some police or Partnerships may even add a little more onto this but 10% + 2 is the bear minimum, from what I understand.

    i was also on the m6 goin south at about 8pm and yeah they were there
    aswell when i went past and i was doin about 80mph so i just hope i dont
    get a ticket either.

    just a possibility

    unless they are monitoring the flow of traffic at that time to see if they
    get more speeders in the evening/night than in the day

    Cannot even see the sense of sme people to even think it's safe to put speed cameras on motorways yet they still do.
    Down in Watford on the M1 the other day they had the warning signs flashing 40 for no reason & anyone not abiding to them were going under a bridge with cameras on & getting pulled further down the road, police were out in force, counted 7 vehicles pulled over & not one reason for the signs to slow down apart from the muppets pulling up several amount of cars onto the hard shoulder. I should add the use of "muppets" in this case alone as I mean what was the point of slowing traffic down to 40mph for no reason!!!
