    Quite lucky here in County Durham Police Chief constable doesn't believe in speed cameras (fixed ones anyway) plus he doesn't have the man power or budget to implement. I still drive carefully though so hence a clean license.

    @ ChrisH - Plenty here in Lincolnshire as well. And so far (touch wood) a clean licence for me at the moment. They are starting to appear everywhere and I have a 70 mile round trip everyday to work and tend to see on average 2 Scamera Vans at the side of the road as well.

    Its not bad where I live now. Theres 2 gatsos either side of town and most of the time you will do well to speed past them due to the roads being very busy. Never seen a camera van in town but they like to sit on the M65 bridges. Last time my dad got done the van was parked behind a bush in a field on the A483 Preston road!!!

    Re: Speed Camera Revenge

    The latest "hide the van" trick around here is the colour. They have started using yellow renault vans and putting a speed camera symbal the size of a postage stamp (Perhaps a slight exageration there) somewhere on it, maybe underneath to comply with the signage rules.

    They have to be on the 'Public Highway' .

    A few years ago, in our village the police where trying out a new type speed camera in one of the first vans for speed camera's in Derbyshire, they where parked on the forecourt of our local filling station ( private land).
    I was not very popular when in conversation with the policeman I told him he could not prosecute all the 80 drivers for speeding because he was parked on private land .
    Next time he came into my shop he told me I was right.

    Michael.

    PS. Just found out there in a new system that being tried out in some parts of the country .
    It logs your vehicle registration, then a long way down the same road (in Miles) they take your vehicle reg number again and give you a ticket if your average speed was above the speed limit.
