    Default Speed cameras!

    I couldn't post this anywhere else Ed.

    I thought you lot might be interested to know that the UK's Freedom of Information Act means that you can get access to ALL speed camera offences registered in the last 12 months. - yeah!

    Every time your car goes past a speed camera, even 1mph over the set limit, it is registered and put onto a national database? - yeah!

    You only get a ticket if you are way over the limit or, (this is the bit that I didn't know) if you receive more than 10 near misses, you will be classed as a 'serial offender' and get a ticket the next time you go just over the limit. - yeah!

    This is why you hear of people being done for 34mph in a 30mph limitarea, whilst others doing 39mph do not. You can check what has been registered against your vehicle at the following web address:

    http://www.i-database.co.uk

    You will be asked for a password, but just click on the need a Password link and you will be given one for future use.

    Or just enter your car registration. If there is any data on your vehicle you can click on the camera window to see a copy of the photograph. I did my number plate and couldn't believe my eyes...

    Got me last time it was on around August last year.

    Just got back from Cornwall which is where the "offence" came up. I was kicking things for 10 minutes before I thought to check the picture.
