    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 N Yorks just mobile ones.

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

    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.

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

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

    If they do they must all get stolen as soon as they're put out. :LOL:

    Fixed cameras are supposed to be signed in advance but not mobile ones.

    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 :)

    Some areas though are using traffic calming to reduce speeding.

    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.

    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 !

    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 )

    There is a list of roads subject to mobile camera use published in our local paper.
