    Angry Help - Got flashed by speed camera!

    Hi folks,

    I was on Ballards Road (B178) Dagenham (Essex) i've gone past the Gatso and past the white marker lines in cruise control doing 30mph but went 31mph after 300 yards because the road goes uphill and the camera flashed twice!

    I'm worried if i'm going get a ticket and 3 points because my job depends on my licence and i never speed except at work on emergency calls! I understand if you exceed 10% of the limit then you get done big time but i've seen Gatso camera's flash when vehicles going the opposite direction have triggered it!

    I'm just stressed out!

    IF you WERE doing 31 in a 30 IT WILL NOT have flashed at YOU, so don't worry.

    Don't worry too much 35mph will trigger them. The speedo was saying 31mph, but you were probably doing 29mph. Gatsos will flash periodically as a deterrent.

    I wouldn,t worry at the speed you went past the camera at I would say your true speed would be below 30 anyway.

    Wait 14 days and see if the Registered Keeper is sent a driver disclosure notice
    If they are, then that person should make a FOI request for both photos (there may be a fee)

    the camera might of been triggered by you, but the two photos used as backup will clearly show your true speed. Thats if the ting has any film in it (only approx 30% do). I doubt you wil here anything.
