    Default Hats off to this guy who beat the camera?

    Maybe cameras are not as accurate as people would think

    This begs the question what is an accurate measure of speed? The car's dash, The Spees enforcement cameras, GPS, or A.N. other

    Cameras don't detect speeds!
    It is either a radar or a laser...
    For some other devices it is complete human control!

    Good to see someone getting there own over the law. Sounds like a very interesting gadget aswell.

    I have a telematics system fitted to my van and for that reason if I don't speed I know I can prove it if the need comes.

    Ben but they usually only send data every 5 mins or so so they only get an accurate speed then don't they. (Ours do anyway - although could well show the general driving that day was calm etc)

    The only problem is it can work both ways and it could prove that you were speeding.

    And if the powers that be can see this would be in the wrong not to formally warn you or fire you.
    I get paid to be on the road no matter how long it takes to get to a job. I have no reason to risk points or expense for their benefit of etting to a client 5 minutes earlier.

    I like the CPS excuse "m'lud, the operator has since retired and we cannot prove to the required standard......" Why can't they just say that maybe they got it wrong? They might get a bit more respect from people
