    Default Speed Guns Misfiring: Tonight at 20:00 ITV

    Could a speed gun widely used by police really be seriously flawed? Mark Jordan meets the motorist who claims he can prove the device is error prone - and others challenging its readings through the courts with increasing success.
    Could be intresting.

    Ive seen something similar - there is one Nearby me that Likes to go off on its own accord - not one but two flashes so its a bit suss... it went off just before I passed into its Field of View - which scared the life out of me at first, it tends to do it when there is traffic approaching towards it - its the Gatso Type

    Most GATSOs will flash if you drive at them too quickly....its something to do with the way the radar/laser is bounced back from the car and interpreted wrong.....there's one down the road from me that must have a blank picture every day i drive to work!!

    But this is worrying about the handheld speed cameras - I know if you do get stopped after being done by one, you should ask if it's been calibrated that day, but to make a house read 8mph? that's bad!

    Maybe we should just be less bothered about speed limits and just drive how you like.....probably make no odds anyway!
