It's becoming a royal pain in the arse. I'm glad I don't do a lot of motorway driving, I would spend my life in a bad mood.

Aye, I'm a model citizen.  I've always had a clean licence, and not been on a speed awareness course.  Just call me Mr Perfect.

I've never seen camera vans on the A303 before, but there was one on the westbound side near Yeovil. I was heading east and thought that there wouldn't be anymore, but I came round a corner and there was another sat in the hedge!  :(  Than there was a third one near Wincanton.  ::)

You might be wrong. Six weeks ago I was flashed by a police van on the A368 in Corston, east of Bath, but have heard no more. Sounds like Avon & Somerset have quite a fleet of speed detection vans!

Hiding is not British! Plod will say that if they showed themselves, people would slow down, but isn't that what they want? The only possible reason for secrecy is for revenue collection.  >:( >:( >:(

I'm banged to rights Ron and I'll be very surprised if I don't get a ticket in the next few days.  ::)

But you are right they were parked in a sneaky place. It was just where the duel carriageway goes to single and a 50mph limit so I was slowing as I came round the corner and saw the van, as there is a fixed camera about half a mile up the road.

I just didn't slow down enough........  :-[

Cruise control?


Incidentally, if you come to Spain this year and go off on the open road , the cops have discrete mobile cameras which are moved around. They sit under the armco at the roadside.
