    Default Mobile speed cameras

    I was on my way home following a merc relatively close but not quite tailgating, when we passed a mobile speed camera positioned in the back of the van type. The van was facing us coming from a 50 to a 30 zone. At the time i noticed the camera i looked down and was doing 33, i was still behind the merc so im hoping its caught him and not me as he couldnt of seen my plate! At the time of actually passing the van we were both doing 30 but it makes me wonder how far was the camera looking in the distance before we spotted it?

    I pass cameras regular while in the truck and RELIGIOUSLY never speed but yet i still get paranoid, even when i know i was below the limit!

    I also heard they give you a mile or two ph/ over the limit too?

    33 in a 30 is unlikely to cause any trouble i would have thought, otherwise they would be overrun and people would be arguing that its an error or something.

    positive yer, even the way it was positioned, in a sneaky way just from a 50 down to a 30 when ur most likely to speed. Ive seen many of them tax ones though and it wasnt.

    Apparently they can set the distance, so if you're coming into a 30 from a 50 they can have it set at the start of the 30, you'd then have a higher probability of being caught while your speeds still coming down to 30.

    One of my pet hates is where they set up, usually at nice areas over in Northern Ireland, never up in the bad estates where there's more than just speed offences!!

    They definitely put them in 'tacticle' areas thats for sure, sneaky but effective.

    Tactile? Boys you wanna see how they do it in germany thats tactile. I swear theyre one move of hiding in gilly suits. Theyve got camera's that look like wheelie bins that they sit at the side of the road on bin collection day! Coppers hide in trees with no high vis vests and camera's. They hide in no access roads, But the one that really grips my **** is the civvies who get paid to put a camera in the back window of their car. then at night when they park at night on the street and you cruise past BAM a flash and ya sit there thinking WTF???

    But all that said after being caught pretty much by all of these measures it sure did put me off speeding. and after all why should they announce that they have the camera's out? isnt the whole point of it to stop people speeding and catch those who are?
    They dont announce to drgu barons when theyre going to raid a hosue so why should they announce when deployin speed camera's

    You *should* be OK - your speedo over-reads slightly... at an indicated 33, you will probably be doing 30. New vs. worn tyres make a difference, too. As a general rule of thumb, they prosecute over 10% plus 2 mph. Always unnerving when you notice the needle even slightly over and pass a van, though!!!
