You absolutely keep 100% to the speed limits and never had a daydream moment in the car ever? Well done. These help to remind people where the speed cameras are and to keep their speed down. I have over speed warning alert on my Tomtom and whilst the areas aren't always accurate it has helped warn me when I go over the speed. So for people who aren't perfect such as andycraze this is a good deal if you can get it.

This is just advocating brealing the law, telling you where the hot spots are. The boys in blue are still around/ So there aint much point in giving it some welly. Unless you got one of those revolving number plates like jb 00 has got.

OK. Speed cameras and these Tomtom add ons do exactly the same thing, they make you slow down Exactly where you should.

Everyone has an off moment when there not quite thinking as they should, what would you rather do go into a 30 zone, go over the limit and kill a child or would you rather be reminded in a way that makes you slow down and potentially give a child who runs out into the road a fighting chance to survive.

There are too many people who fall on the "these things just stopped people being booked" band wagon, they should drop onto the "it supplements the cameras and helps to reduce speed, and potentially save lives"

I would think that some drivers going into a strange area that see a speed camera late would potentially slam on the brakes late, with a detector you are told well in advance and slow down BEFORE you need too, now, isn't that safer?

Way to many doo gooders fall for this approach, I have a friend who has driven for 40 years, never had an accident, never been caught speeding, and is a carful driver, she is very critical of speeding drivers, saying that they are a menace and shouldn't be allowed on the road, she also states that the points should be greater, fines too... GUESS WHAT!!! yep, done for speeding, there is no one who can honestly say "I have never gone over the speed limit" if you say it then you fooling yourself!

Good Post OP, will check locally.

How many times have you been on a road and did not know the speed for that particular road? loads of times I bet, next time you are out see how mant signs there are displaying the speed for that road..vert few....tom toms show yout speed and the speed for the road you are on.

you're being funny right? everyone is bla bla this is saving lives...are you blind or just like this too much?

this is not an update to the speed limits list on your satnav or an update for THE REMINDER on your satnav which IS ALREADY THERE TO START WITH...satnavs have the bleep bleep as standard to warn you unless you turn it off

this is updating you of the location of the speed cameras which will prevent you for getting fined...when you speed of course...

it does not save lives...you by being aware of what speed you're going saves lives, you being careful saves lives...

and don't throw that one again of...ooo i don't know what speed to go on this road...there are no signs...go 100mph then...if you don't know stop and ask or just go 30mph...

it's your own responsability to know what speed you're going...if you daydream, and i'm not saying i haven't done it, then it's you own fault...if you speed i bet you are aware when you are doing it...:viking:

can we have a please run over sign on stupid cyclists who dont wear helmets, wear black clothing, have no lights...like the black bloke my dad almost ran over when he crossed the road from a path behind a parked car...dumb...people like that deserve being run over...but of course its the driver fault

speed cameras in some areas are lethal...how many times have you seen drivers slam on the brakes as soon as they see the camera (often hidden!!) and the cars behind almost plough into each other...noone will say anything for fear of being criminalised but as an example look at the stupid ones on the m4 that lead to london

some of us can drive and i do over the speed limit, not often, esp motorways but use it wisely and only when keeping up with traffic - most people on the M4 corridor do speed anyway....i slow down in mid heavy traffic, slow down when inner lanes are slowling down....clear road then i keep up with traffic......most of the time im doing 70, maybe a little more

im sick of these moaners....alot of these speeding moaners are the worst drivers on the road....how about sentencing the following to death:-
people who take 10 mins to parallel park.....no im not kidding either...usually a small car with a space big enough for a lorry
middle lane or outter lane hoggers
drivers who pull out from a hard shoulder straight into the inside line without building up sufficient speed
those who dont indicate
those who indciate incorrectly (right when going straight on - WHY??), you dont need to indicate until you approach you exit
using incorrect lanes at roundabouts (LEFT lane is straight on unless otherwise indicated - not helped but stupid councils who cant read the highway code!!) - also at the ROAD markings they are for dumb dumbs!!
driving at 10mph in a 60mph...you dont need a car
tailgating - worst driving possible
people who drive so slowly that it makes you wonder why they bothered to buy a car....im talking about 5-10mph in a 30 or even 60!

oh and please can we have some stats on cameras that have CAUSED accidents.....oh there arent any - i wonder why (buried in the stat category of "driver drove to fast and ploughed into car slowly down for the 40mph zone" - rather than the "driver never been to area before ploughed into car who did an emergency stop because they saw camera at last minute" you mean)

I was thinking the exact same thing

It makes the task of hiding speeding cameras pointless for one

secondly the cameras normally let you off if your slightly over anyway so you would have to be driving pretty fast not to slip through the net

thirdly what are the chances of people using this to slow down when they get a warning and speed up again when they are in the clear. I am guessing pretty high

not to forget the fact that when you enter a zone where the speed changes there is a big red white and black sign telling drivers of the fact. If not like others have said use your tom tom to find out the limits.

1. i honestly have not seen a hidden speed camera, i always see warning signs that it's there or drivers flashing to warn each other...

2. don't know about that coz i alwayz go slightly under when passing a camera :)

3. pretty high exactly but then the blue patrols are out there blowing their whistle :whistling:

4 (kinda) signs are everywhere if there's one missing here and there that's not an excuse usually there are more than one further down the road...

whilst there is a good argument from both sides going on here, i find the highlighted point a bit worrying. you shouldn't be relying on a tomtom to give a child a fighting chance, you should be using your roadsense and knowledge to anticipate what may be ahead. if you don't know a road, you get accustomed it first....
what you going to do if a child runs out suddenly? tell the police to sue the tomtom producers?
to be harsh, it's just passing on the responsibilty.

There should be a device for capturing and punishing those idiots who drive too slowly, or any caravan towers or generally people who don't know where they're going. :-D

Please can everyone stop (ab)using the comments facility to further the inevitable debate on whether cameras, not speeding or whatever saves lives etc.

To be honest I don't think they're worth 97p I paid for the TomTom Live which gives this information plus traffic alerts and the camera information was shocking considering I was paying for the service and when I reported fixed cameras they still weren't on TomTom's database weeks later.

The alternatives that are out there are far superior to this product IMO

I'm sitting on 9 points for doing 103mph...... So heat added.....

By the way that 3 lots of points for doing 34mph 34mph and 35mph...... so thats 13mph over the limit...
anything that assists is good to me......

Hallelujah! Common sense prevails amidst the quagmire of confusion.
Quite simple;
You don't need speed cameras or knowledge of their sites or speed camera detectors to alert you to the fact that you are travelling at a speed above the the speed limit - look at the Speedometer - if that's not high tech enough get a device that alerts you when travelling above the speed limit such as a bog standard sat nav.
The mobile units will get you anyway.

great deal if it actually exists nationwide - I'll have a pop in tomorrow

There is a criteria for where speed cameras can be installed, usually where there has been a serious accident. In my mind the cameras provide two main purposes:
1) to discourage speeding and help police the road
2) inform the driver of potential danger 'hot spots' on the road.

I drive over 30,000 miles a year and i never purposely speed on the main roads. There are times when i am driving in an unknown area when i come across a speed camera and i generally do not know the speed of the road; I am only human. Without the database i would automatically hit the brakes to slow down and this really annoys drivers behind me. The database confirms the speed of the road and allows me to be a safer driver.

The speed cameras also demonstrate areas where there have been previous serious accidents and this information is invaluable, especially in a town where i do not know very well; i see a camera and become more alert to the driving conditions.

Some towns and villages purposely hide their speed cameras which i find very wrong, they should be a deterrent to speeding and not an income generator. One such town is Gossip in Greater Manchester. Not only do they hide the cameras in bushes, they paint them GREEN to blend in, no reflective yellow on any part of the camera.

I can not find any negative arguments against having a speed camera database on a TomTom. I do not use my database to only slow down when there is a camera nor do i use the database to avoid points on my license and i don't think others do either. either way, if a driver is going to speed, they are going to speed - at least the camera slows them down at the 'hot spots'. Those who wish to speed will be picked up by mobile speed vans which are not on the database (and i mean they can not clearly outline where the mobile vans are on an live basis). Cameras do their job, they alert you to dangerous areas and so does the speed camera database.

I have no points on my driving licence and have passed a 'IAM' advanced driving course. Incidentally, my advanced driving instructor was retired police - his advice on speeding is
"never break the speed on the road, however you will never be stopped for driving at 80mph on the motorway:
