    Thank you, for your very informative video, I never intentionally speed, but obviously everyone some times inadvertently goes over the speed limit. I believe it was Tony Blair that said all speed cameras should be painted yellow…But I don’t know if it became law.

    Here in NZ it’s mobile vans on the side of the road that are the common ones. Always on long straights, or the end of passing lanes. All know it’s not safety, but for some reason just accepted. And I like yours…they don’t place warnings…they are hidden and that’s ok

    Cash cow cameras are helping the virus revenue to pay for out of work people 500 million pound per month to help us all

    Speed limit signs, look out for them.
    Don’t go over the number it indicates, and you won’t get caught by a speed camera.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

    it isnt travelo its TRUVELO (true velocity), The ten percent ISNT to cover camera inaccuracy its allowed by law to cover analogue SPEEDOMETER inaccuracy, when they first appeared too many people contested it and got off with it citing unknowing speedometer error…………which the manufacturers backed up…………so they made the over ten percent law to say right NOW we get to keep you ! BUT having said that….. only recently that gobshite running North Wales Police AND his oppo in Cheshire Police have made it known THEY will make NO inaccuracy allowences in future prosecutions……just waiting to hear of somebody challenging it in court. By the way what a lot of people dont know about average speed cameras is the DONT record you from behind – they record the "oncoming" traffic in the opposite lane so sliding past a wagon to avoid recognition really DOESNT work…………………….the bastard five hundred yards away on the OTHER side of the road is the one that got you as you past its predetermined measuring point – plus they get to record the drivers face too………..just in case it happened to have ahem ….been"stolen" just that very morning ,

    Just don’t speed "SORTED"

    My years old Snooper S5R has paid for itself a thousand time over. Very useful gadget.

    7:55 It’s not about the technology, it’s about operating procedure. In order for a fine or prosecution to stand up in court they have to follow the correct operating procedure exactly. The operating procedure is based on reducing errors and false positives, and maximising accuracy. This is why they lane pairing is a thing, and why (if it’s really not a myth – to me it makes sense that it would be true but I have no way of verifying that) it will continue to be a thing until a different camera system is introduced (like the newer cameras on the smart motorways for example probably don’t have this restriction where they are used for average speed enforcement).

  14. TGK300 Xx on March 20, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    In my opinion, all speed cameras should be removed. We don’t need them.

  15. George Buller on March 20, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    Hi there! First off, great video! I’m from the West Midlands (old South Staffs actually) so I understood your accent perfectly – just in case some people whinge about your accent! LOL

    I’ve been driving since 1975 and hold both a full car and motor cycle licence. Most of my working life was spent in the motor trade and during that ‘life’ I covered many, many hundreds of miles on road test – some(!) of those miles at speeds that were, shall we say, a little north of legal! Also – during that time – I was ‘done’ only once for speeding (more by luck than judgement!) and since leaving the motor trade proper, I have fallen foul of a speed camera (one in a van) once as well. As a matter of interest, I’ve been involved in a few minor accidents too down the years – ALL at speeds BELOW 30mph!

    As someone who has been interested in driving since I was a young child (I have pictures of me in a pedal car at ‘Uncle Eric’s pedal car track in Rhyl, North Wales dating back to the early ’60’s!) I have become ever more annoyed by the way cameras have been used to sneakily extort money from the easiest target/cash-cow of all – the motorist.

    I totally agree that if someone is driving dangerously, then they should be penalised for it – but speed ISN’T always the issue! BAD DRIVING is!

    A proficient driver doing 100mph at 3am on an empty motorway is surely no more dangerous than a tw*t doing 40 in a 30 at 3pm in a school zone!

    I drive for a living now, and on a daily basis, I see people out there who really shouldn’t be in charge of a loaded wheel barrow – let alone a motor vehicle! FFS, why do they insist on teaching people to drive at 20mph? When I was learning, I’d get a b*llocking from my instructor, for not making adequate progress! LOL

    No, in my opinion, the major issues with motoring and speeding today are thus:

    1/ Too many people think holding a driving licence is their ‘right’ It ISN’T, its a privilege to be earned!
    2/ The powers that be see this attitude as acceptable and a sure fire way to bring in revenue and thus are okay with drivers passing their tests whether they are good enough to do so or not..
    3/ Not enough mitigation is possible with a poxy ‘safety’ (read speed/cash generating) camera.

    I could go on, but lets see what kind of feedback we get to this comment before I do.

    Once again, many thanks for the video. 🙂

  16. Julian Taylor on March 20, 2021 at 8:51 pm

    Got to love the pious replies on here saying " if you don’t speed you don’t get caught". Have you never lost attention for a moment and gone 2 or 3 mph over a limit. If not you are incredible driver’s and I bow down to you.

    The police / revenue raising partnerships lose any position if respect when they ticket people for being nominal amounts over a limit because it is so easy to do unintentionally.

    It is simply an easy way to police and has removed a level of judgement that a traditional copper would use.

  17. Rony on March 20, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    What does it mean if you get flash once?

  18. justin Abbott abbott on March 20, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    Good info thanks

  19. Hector Heath on March 20, 2021 at 8:55 pm

    Save 10 mins of your life by not watching this, just don’t speed.

  20. Chuckabutty on March 20, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    Two questions. Does there have to be a camera warning sign for them to be legal? Do they have to be visible to be legal? There is a camera near me that is not visible during the summer due to an over hanging tree in full leaf and another on a by pass obscured by a road sign.

  21. Holly B Film on March 20, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Subscribed, good info but can we have more please on how if red traffic light cameras actually can zaap you for speeding????

  22. DustyFingers RC on March 20, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    I was caught doing 33 in a 30 and had to do a speed awareness course. So the 10% rule plus 2mph didn’t apply. Good video.

  23. lee a dorney on March 20, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    All the saddos moaning about these DON’T SPEED = easy.. !

  24. Rods toy box on March 20, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    It’s when the filth set up speed traps pointing a gun at you in areas where there are never any accidents purely to make an easy buck that it pisses me off. Total abuse of their powers not for safety but for quick cash and an easy days work.

  25. Philip Rock on March 20, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Speed limits are not law.
    Speed limits and therefore the camera enforcements are regulations and corporate rules.
    The people are the law, the law is the people. The government does not come into it.

  26. whichwasher2007 on March 20, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Must admit I’ve been caught twice by speed cameras. 1 was a combined jump and speed camera with line markings. Got caught speeding because the duel carriage way used to be 40mph. And I was caught doing 37mph. In a replaced 40mph zone to 30mph.
    The 2nd one was a mobile camera pointing at a corner in the middle of nowhere with a speed limit of 30mph with 6 houses set back a good 30 yards from the road.
    While I agree with all of these cameras. Mobile speed cameras I don’t agree with. To be honest the new lazer ones I also don’t agree with either. And it’s this problem. Speeding is only dangerous when either very excessive or combined with driving without due care and attention. This is why gatso ones are the most fair. If you carnt see a bright yellow box with lines on the road. Then your driving way to fast for your attention span. But if you going up a straight road. And there is a camera pointing at you 1km away. I can guarantee the camera operator will not be able to see you with their own eyes. So what makes them think that drivers can see their van from that far.
    Just money making in my opinion. As I’ve always said. If there was a problem with speeding combined with deaths and or serious injuries then there should be a permanent speed camera.

  27. AJaXX JaM on March 20, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Dirty and lousy. Why I’m not surprise?

  28. John Mehaffey on March 20, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    They are just a money making revenue another form of taxation and certainly not a safety device and if you think differently then you’re not thinking straight because they go off after speeding so how is that a safety thing when you’ve already been over the limit,

  29. John Vienta on March 20, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    In Queensland, Australia the Police impose a fee for the Court attendance of an expert witness if a driver contests a speeding allegation. This cost is $5,700 and is designed entirely to prevent multitudes of defendants pleading not guilty and clogging up the system. This intimidation is in itself unlawful as every person has the right to defend themselves against any allegation, however to the surprise of nobody at all, the judiciary are quite happy to look the other way when it suits them.

    In Germany they are painted green and hidden in trees

  31. Paul Palmtree on March 20, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    The surveillance society, I hate it.
    I recollect Chef Gordon Ramsay saying that many years ago, whilst driving to work, he kept getting speeding tickets, and that he got so pissed of with this, that early one morning he put a layer of cling film over the camera lens, and he never received a fine again, from that particular camera. Because although the camera still works, it could not focus on the car number plates, so a good result.

  32. Chris Winter on March 20, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    So you slow down for the marked area and then when you get past the whole block then you take off and floor it

  33. Christopher Beale on March 20, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    I got caught speeding by a police camera that had the sun directly behind it blinding me to the fact it was there I only saw the thing when I was 40 meters away and far to late also had barriers on the road helping hide the stupid thing and it was clearly there as a cash grab because the speed limit goes from 70 down to 40 and in my experience slamming on the breaks on time to be doing 40 at the sign would be more likely to cause an accident

  34. nexus building on March 20, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    They are a cash cow, and easy money for the treasury

  35. TheFalconerNZ on March 20, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    When speed radars were first introduced in NZ they had to put a sign 1/2 a mile down the road warning you and in Japan speed cameras must be have warnings and while this may seem pointless it does do what the camera is meant to do – slow cars down – only without the fine that goes with the camera ticket.

  36. Georgi Georgiev on March 20, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Absolutely no idea how a camera can stop someone to drive as fast as they please… as long as they have deep pocket.. oh wait i got it its to make the poor poorer by taking their money for inshurance and ban them and job loss and house loss and family loss and suicide. Long live the welthy

  37. Newcastlewatson on March 20, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    10% + 2mph is based on the local police forces regs and changes between forces but you can look it up.

  38. yensabi on March 20, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Speed cameras = ££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££££ for the local authority’s patch its on ….

  39. K L on March 20, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    So funny how the UK talking about china use CCTV to monitor their citizen and it’s again human right. From what I know the UK has as many CCTV cameras as China or even more.

  40. Ronnie Biggs on March 20, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Is it a myth that on the base of a specs motorway camera if you see a white box connected to some wires then the camera is live or if you just see the pole sat on its concrete block without the unit and wires then it’s a dummy or about to be moved ! Ps how come in a 50 zone with specs cameras trucks go flying past you whilst your clinging to the wheel at dead 50? Just sayin.

  41. chocol8tsundae on March 20, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Speed cameras aren’t there to raise revenue. If you didn’t speed you wouldn’t be contributing to that revenue. They are there to catch you doing the wrong thing. I also disagree with the idea that mobile cameras should be sign posted in advance. They are meant to be discreet too catch you out of you speed.

  42. focii53 on March 20, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    If you speed you deserve to be caught there is no excuse. So don’t go crying to your mates about being caught and fined.

  43. Paul Palmtree on March 20, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    I do wonder, what is the accident ratio on German Autobahn’s where there’s no speed limit, compared to British motorways max speed limit of 70 MPH. Is it true that there is very few accidents on our motorways, because of the lower speeds ?.

  44. G1zm0 on March 20, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Ban all cameras , just a revenue gathering device. Red light cameras are worse.

  45. Sergey Nemiroff on March 20, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Interesting video, not sure about the Specs cameras though. How do you suggest a specs camera measures the drivers speed throughout all the distance they are set for? Thats already hard enough to do for 1 car, very unlikely to do for 200 cars at the same time in multiple lanes. I am never going the advised speed on the specs cameras and have never received a speeding ticket for these areas. Not bragging, just stating a fact on an actual example.

  46. Norwood Boy on March 20, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    Brilliant idea in Portugal if you are speeding there is a sensor by the roadside that will turn the traffic lights in front of you to red therefore stopping you, you will not get a fine but you will really annoy other drivers and you soon learn not to do it!!
