    Default oops

    Think i may have been stung with one of those speed camera vans, I pulled out of my street on to the main road and turned left towards Kilmacolm doing about 33 (give or take) in a 30 zone , went up to my moms shop to drop off a few things and on the way back down i noticed the speed camera van was parked just down from my house. I did not see it on the way up luckily wasn't speeding coming home but was in a bit of a hurry to get up there, my own fault so will just have to wait and see if anything comes in through the post, really hope it wasn't there on the way up

    Dont most forces operate a 10 percent plus 1 policy ? As speedometer can be 10% out either way , sure for alot of forces you have to be doing 34 mph in 30 before they prosecute ! Could be lucky !

    If you were doing an indicated 33 on your speedo then you won't have been doing 33 actual. Because a speedo is not allowed to under read by even 1 mph i.e. indicate 30 when you're actually doing 31, manufacturers generally set them to over read, and it's allowed to over read by up to 10%. So if you were doing an indicated 33 then it's going to be a couple of mph less actual so unless your area is operating a zero tolerance on speed then you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

    Not quite. Can only over read by up to 10%, but can't under read at all.

    Vehicle : SRI 150

    Trim : Smart and Bad!

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 105000

    Default

    Had speed fine for 33mph, i asked if i have to pay etc, they let me off as its within range of 10% not more! So 10% of 30 is 3.33333333 lol so it'll be rounded up to nearest number meaning 3mph max over 30mph.

    It'll only capture by measuring at a distance to about 5-10 metres away from camera in van.

    If u're pulling away at a distance. Think you'll not get it. Depends how far away van was from u.
