Interesting piece of data from the police regarding people caught speeding last year:

Major roads, A19 south of Teesside, A1, and A168, a total of 42,500 people were caught speeding. The worst was one travelling at 144mph. Have noticed lots of mobile cameras on here in the last year or two. Eventually people will get the message I suppose, or maybe not.

No fixed cameras in Dumfries & Galloway either, but two mobile units, police traffic cars and unmarked cars. I've seen plenty pulled in the last few months.

They must bring in a significant revenue stream as they always seem to be there.

I thought they have to have a warning sign on a stretch of road where they use them.

They have, and some look a bit like this and some have different numbers on them. ;)

Don't what a fine, THEN DO NOT SPEED, simple.

Agree! Nothing to do with a halo, if you don't want the risk of a fine/points do not speed, easy. Naughty persons course is used here, good attendance on my last one :)

Fixed cameras are supposed to be signed in advance but not mobile ones.
Down here we have camera signs up where they put the mobile cameras but the fixed ones aren't signed in advance.
Just looked it up, it is only a code of practice so it's up to the individual areas whether they do or not.

Mobile cameras are far more effective revenue gatherers than fixed cameras.
Unlike fixed cameras you never know where there might be.

Canna be that effective as revenue gatherers .. Norfolk got shot of theirs some 4 years ago as they did not even pay their way ! Mind you, perhaps we are a more law abiding lot that you Yorkshire lot !

I thought they have to have a warning sign on a stretch of road where they use them.

Yes they do.. But you will find the signs are fixed at regular intervals, usually 3 to 4 miles apart.
There has to be a sign within 2 miles of a fixed camera, a mobile camera or where a police officer is going to use a 'gun' ( not sure any where using them now though )

On and off for many years.
There is a list of roads subject to mobile camera use published in our local paper.

Since 1964 Gosh that makes me feel old.
There's a novel idea in use in the village of Springholm in Dumfries & Galloway which is on the A75 euro route.
The village has a 30mph speed limit & if you exceed that limit it triggers a set of traffic lights to go red, hey presto you grind to a halt. :(
So its up to you if you pass through at a sensible speed you carry on unimpeded.
I realise that this is no use on the A1 but at least your not being fleeced of your hard earned cash. (y)

I’ve seen those and think they’re a good idea, but the thought occurs to me that if you are going to break the speed limit, would you not just go through the red light?

North Yorkshire police are using cameras purely to raise money,they have sod all to do with road safety. They hide behind buildings and bushes and the ones on motor cycles hide and just leave a tripod on the road side. And before all you angles say you shouldn’t speed i bet none of you haven’t accidentally gone over to 33-35mph at some time .(y)

Coupar Angus has a similar system on the route in from the north beside the park/school. Triggered by traffic, not speed. Quite often get to the lights and the change to green so not stopped but they do control speed. I think a kid was killed on that stretch a few years back (n)
