    Exclamation Specs in Blackwall Tunnel

    From another forum, Tyresmoke


    There are now small undetectable specs cameras (average speed detection cameras) sited in both the north and south bore of the Blackwall tunnel. The speed limit for the tunnels are 30mph northbound and 40mph southbound.

    It would appear that TFL have implemented it. Any offences for speeding through the tunnel would be raising funds of £100 per offence or £50 if paid promptly. They have not installed signs warning drivers of this speed trap and therefore would not be looking to hit drivers with a licence endorsement, just take the money from you.



    This information has been verified by the police and tunnel maintenance workers who wish to remain anonymous. Beware.

    I didnt think they could fine you without warning you with signs? Or is that just for points?

    Warning signs are not required for speed cameras
    Anyway, they are SPECS cameras, quite a few loopholes!

    Sorry, but this is a load of tosh. Speeding offences are classed as a 'criminal offence' and local government organisations can't fine people for 'speeding.' They couldn't even give out parking tickets until parking offences were de-criminalised.

    I'm sure Red Ken would if he could though!

    SPOOF!!!

    "The cameras fitted in the tunnel are part of the safety system recommended in 2000 by the EU and covered in the attached report. They are CCTV for monitoring traffic flow and definitely not SPECS. There is also a webcam in there but it is not accessible (legitimately) at present."

    Google is your friend...........
