    Radio Five Live was, this morning, reporting on the fact that the number of speed cameras in the UK may rise dramatically from the current 3,500 or so that we have now.

    Has anyone noticed the announcement that from the end of March, local authorities will not have to paint speed camers in high-vis colours or site them in obvious locations? New legislation means that they can virtually be camouflaged and the locations don't have to be in the open. Some years...

    Just got this from a friend: "The new electronic signs on the M6 were switched on this Tuesday. The bad news is that they are rigged with the SPECS speed cameras. This probably applies to all the new signs being installed on the M62, M60 and M56. SPECS is a computer-camera based system. As...

    FYI Apart from the speed cameras near the big bridge (Warrington?) in the 40mph limit, there are camera's between J23 & J26 north and southbound. The northbound ones look to be covered up, but the southbound ones look operational. They're on big yellow curvey poles so you can't miss them. As...

    Some loonies at the loony Transport 2000 are taking a laughable challenge to the high court about the fact that speed cameras are being made visible by being painted yellow. The premise of their challenge is: "In no other area of criminal enforcement do criminals get warned that they might be...

    Does anyone know if it's true that if you put 3 cd's left, right, and centre of the windscreen shiny side out this deflects speed camera beams giving a false and unusable reading as I drive an over blown 2.3 9000 this must be of use to enable me to keep a clean licence
