Average Speed Cameras - the Controversy

Sep 02, 2015
Average speed cameras have always been a subject of debate amongst drivers. The ‘cash vs. benefit’ or ‘profit vs. safety’ debate is often mentioned. Are the police starting to provide a ‘fairer game’?

How to Spot One
Average speed cameras are small grey or yellow cameras mounted on grey or yellow posts. They can be bunched together (looking like birds on a wire) and each camera set can be in two or three’s. 

Increasingly (because they are here to stay?) they are also gaining their own road markings – so spotting them may well be easier. The road markings look like upside down ‘L’ shapes in the centre of the lane. However, these markings are not mandatory.
