    Default Average Speed Cameras

    Ok so I drive on a route where I pass one of these yello perils, limit is 50mph. Say I pass it at 80mph am I gonna get caught. I believe they work on a timing basis thus one camera on its own is not a threat--Am i right

    I guess removing the front number plate helps

    I have never had anything through and believe you need to pass 2.... to take an average!

    I used to join to M1 North at J10 which was at the end of some 40/50mph roadworks, but by joining at J10 you just passed the last camera before it went to 70 again. I used to weekly drive past at well over 50 if it was clear and have not heard anything.

    This wouldn't happen to be the new 50mph specs camera system on the A127 by any chance would it? If so then you should be ok. I did something similar to what you described a few months back (through a single specs) and have not heard anything from the police.

    Pass it at a hundred and twenty plus then pull over on the hard shoulder (before next specs camera) and shampoo the dog

    If it is an average speed camera you have to go through two. The system takes a photo on each camera and then calculates the average speed that you were driving at.

    Not even sure it takes a photo as such. It does calculate average speed though. We will be seeing more and more of these is the coming years I am sure
