    Thumbs up New speed camera - you have been warned...

    Motoring News April 2008

    A new zero tolerance speed camera developed and manufactured in Germany could appear on British roads by the end of the year.

    Designated the Maschinekameragewehr 42 or MKG42, the camera is front-facing and has no film to replace. It utilises the latest targeting and speed detection technology, mainly derived from military and space research programmes.

    A major advantage of the MKG42 over other front-facing speedcameras is that it does not depend on photo-images or ANPR (AutomaticNumber Plate Recognition). The camera can therefore target speeding motorcycles as well as cars (motorcycles do not have front number plates).

    In recent tests, the MKG42 achieved a 99.9% accuracy rate. The manufacturers claim that if the camera flashes as a speedingvehicle approaches, the driver will be brought to justice.

    A spokesman for the Department for Transport (DfT) said, 'We arevery enthusiastic about this new camera and expect it to have a huge impact on speeding motorists. Drivers caught by this camera will be unable to claim that someone else was driving and weconsider it highly unlikely that they will re-offend.'

    Many Safety Camera Partnerships have stated their intention to replace old style Gatso cameras with the new MKG42 zero tolerance camera.

    You have been warned!

    See image below of the new camera, which is quite distinctive.
