Pc world also has a bunch of them at this price in the clearance section - hence the £*.97.

As previous poster noted, the Pocketgps ones are far better than the TomTom ones as they are updatesd by an army of road users. (I am not going into the moral point of them selling a database which was built and is sustained by the forum users without sharing the profits...).

To be honest, at this price I'd say just avoid the keygen route. If you really want to try it they are freely available from Warez networks (just google it) and they DO work, but they are a bit of a faff and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE backup your Tomtom before you try using it as I nearly killed mine :p

PGPSW used to be spread around the net for free. I figure PGPSW must have figured out a way to hide identifying info in the downloads and cut off the access to those who pirate the database. Probably using something like random speed cameras in the middle of the sea, as it would just look like any speed camera.

Would agree in principle but too many cameras are there to generate income for either the police or government (depending on colour). All well and good if its a danger spot, but far too often they are placed in zones that used to be say 50, now reduced to 40 with NO justification. Loads of roads have cams around here, some on flat straights with no hidden junctions and NO accident history. A good example is one that switches from 30 to 40 to 30 to 60 and back to 40 all within 1 mile, AND ITS A STRAIGHT ROAD!!!! Thats ridiculous and its difficult to remember what the limit is, god knows how many people its caught out :roll:

If they say they are "safety" cams, I'd rather know where they are so that I can ahem... be more vigilant :p
#17
There used to be one near leeds where the speed limit was 60, then there was a 40mph limit sign and a speed camera right next to it looking into the 40mph zone, so anyone who hadn't slowed down would be pictured. I think either the signs or the camera has moved now.

All camera sites are published online and also provide statistics of the road they are on and accident history, so you can easily find out where they are. Mobile cameras locations are published a week in advance as well:thumbsup:. As to that road you are talking about with 'no accident history' then I'll bet if you looked it up on your CSP site then I'm sure you will see the true accident history, as opposed to the anecdotal one. I don't believe there is a road in the Uk with 'NO accident history'.
#19
What about the four on the A57 in Glossop Derbys and probably similar elsewhere.
They're set up facing oncoming traffic but they've deliberately painted the usual white markers on the road after them.
There have been problems and accidents with speeding motorcycles, but these cameras can't record motorcycles because motorcycles only have number plates on the back.

you are missing the point...because of these stupid devices people spend more time looking at their speedo and looking at hundreds of pointless signs* than watching the road.....speed cameras are a safety hazard imo

* a sign in reading near my parents says "watch out cyclists" (or similar wording), yet ive never seen any cyclists on that road!!

Our local CSP doesn't publish that info..... funny that innit? :whistling:

Errrr, thanks for knowing my area better than me?!?!? I was expecting you to be able to exercise a little bit of common sense. Of course theres been accidents, shunts etc but as far as I KNOW (and i use it daily), theres NEVER been a significant accident that I know of in the last god only knows when resulting in death. HOWEVER, two minutes down the road theres a crazy bend where my work mate was killed and that stands cam free.... go figure??!?!.

Are you suggesting that every road with an accident should be cammed up? If so as you point out, theres going to have to be one on EVERY road?!?! :?

They normally hide them behind bends so you don't spot them till the last minute. Always see everyone slam on the brakes for those ones.

fyi, most cameras are fake especially the road works on m1! they dont even face the roads properly lol

I often wonder if the roadworks yellow 'specs' cameras are working. I stick to the max. 50 mph, but am often overtaken and some people happily speed through them clearly over the limit. Does anyone know people that have been prosecuted for speeding through specs cameras?

Regarding the normal speed cameras then the policy of catching motorists is distorted. I drive on a busy commuter route to work and it is nose to bumper with cars doing 10-20mph. It is also busy with people crossing the road for a bus stop and stupid kids getting from the estate to the other side of the road and they often run straight across in front of you. Inevitably, over the years there have been a couple of accidents with school kids running across the road and a drunk was also killed. In the morning or tea time commuter traffic there are no signs of a speed camera vehicle because people cannot speed, there is too much traffic.

By 7pm the road is clear and people coming up over the hill and down the other side can easily get up to 35-40mph with few otehr cars or people about. The speed camera van often parks up, hidden on the bend at the bottom catching people who are breaking the limit but in fact driving at an appropriate speed on the long open stretch. The speed cameras are simply money making in this instance, they do nothing to prevent any accidents at the peak time when accidents have occured.

...and as a final point, I am not supporting all the idiots that do race around, the aggressive, inconsiderate and erratic drivers, or quite clearly a significant number that are quite obviously not insured...there still seems to be as many so somthing is not right about how this is dealt with.

Sorry Mr perfect car driver. I'll remember that the next time someone decides to pull out in front of me putting my life in danger (a daIly occurance).

To be honest i drive both a truck and a bike, and it's incredible how many car drivers dont pay attention to the road. Bikers have to, since their life depends on it.

It used to be the case with SPECS, legally, that if you changed lanes between the cameras that you could not be done for speeding - something to do with the law stating that you had to be in the same lane.
However i'm not sure if this has changed yet.....

Which one is that? They are required to by law

As far as I can see, cameras can't be put on bends, especially crazy ones, due to the geometry problems. May be it's there to slow the cars down going into that bend. Which road is this??
frakison
Are you suggesting that every road with an accident should be cammed up?

Absolutely not - I hate the things as much as anyone else but do recognise that in some places they can do some good. If I speed I recognise I'm taking the risk.
Not criticising you, but just pointing out that you can in fact find out where the cameras are easily and that saying there had never been a significant accident resulting death (does serious injury count??) may just be anecdotal.
Good deal for the TomTom though.

Ok, let me have a stab at this on a different approach..
Firstly government doesn't wish to spend £700+ per speed sign post for the fun of it, obviously they've got guidelines etc to follow, pretty close to the highway code actually.. so if it says 30-60 then 40 again it means yeah this stretch can go fast but your entering a slightly more built up area, increased danger of running people over or hitting a house for example..

As for cameras, yeah they suck, BUT if you get caught by something that's stationary and bright yellow generally with VERY BRIGHT WHITE LINES on the road your really not paying attention to the environment /road are you? to say it not in the politest of manner, one is an idiot. there's no excuses, there simply isnt, its not like it just popped out in front of you all of a sudden :-D, but if someone did you probably of hit him/her. My point is, if you cant see something that obvious and you really really shouldn't be driving that fast.

think of how many people get banned by just cameras? lol "how many times did you not see them??" each one of those times could've been a child running on the road.. think of how many people they potentially have knocked over...

Government may be an idiot putting silly cameras up to stop people speeding, but don't you think the people who get caught by these bright yellow things are worse?

But lets stick to the topic, if you have one of these you really don't trust your observation skills do you? yeah deal is good no doubt. yeah it might warn you in advance no doubt, but wouldn't that just make you drive faster on an unknown location? Which is bad.. I know it will make me lazy (and annoyed of the beeps), it may help some people and I hope for the better.

I did not intend to offend anyone personally by the above.

P.S. Lets not start the "oh your a saint arnt you? you never speed do you?"
My point is not speed, my point is big yellow thing people seem to miss and get caught by speeding?? I never said I did or did not speed, i merely say big yellow thing one should see 100% of the time if I were to speed..... if i choose not to pay attention to them i do the correct speed.

If you think 30 is silly speed, too slow, etc.. why in the world does people still get caught on it then? if its slow obviously you have enough time to see oh.. fat camera.. slow down? but no.. that simply isnt the case.. thus proving point above.. thus government are quite happy to keep dishing cameras out. stop getting tickets and they'll stop putting it up!
#33
Most people drive by their car's speedo through the 50mph roadworks which means they're going about 5-7mph too slow. Drive by the sat nav speed and you should legally be able to take it up to 52mph maybe. This looks like speeding to those who think 50 = 50 on their speedo ;)

Allowance 11% inaccuracy of speedos IIRC, this is for police and cameras. Avg. speed cameras are pretty new so Im not sure if they even work to that degree of acc. I assume they are better since the number plate recognition thing apparently can take 100s of numberplates a min or something.

The A59 near the Bull and Dog in Burscough has a 30mph camera hidden on a bend. Not just slightly out of view, but properly hidden. Right by a junction as well, so people slam on brakes, the traffic in the junction thinks it can pull out ... well, you get the idea.

I'm neither for nor against the speeders - it's down to what I choose to do - I can't be bothered wasting my time with worrying about things (other people speeding) I can do nothing about.

But ask yourself this, after Swindon banned cameras for being a 'blatant tax' (because the revenues were going to be collected centrally and not distributed locally), it's hard to believe that 100% of cameras are placed for safety alone.

I don't have much of a problem with them. I got caught out by a mobile camera doing 40 in a 30, as the signposts were unlcear; there were no pavements, no shops, spaced out street lights etc, and givendriving experience, you would have thought it was a 40 ... but it wasn't. Never mind - these things happen.

But hiding the vans and fixed cameras shows that there is a hidden agenda. Not to mention the fact that a speed camera doesn't slow you down at all - it just slows you down for a given point on your journey - hence why 90% of people will speed up after exiting a speed trap zone to resume their journey at the speed they want to drive at (legal or not).

If you are caught doing 70mph through a fixed 30mph camera, you get a fine etc within 28 days etc - it doesn't prevent the driver from continuing to drive like an idiot for the rest of their journey and mowing someone down, does it? I'm all for pulling people over and fining them, but fixed cameras are silly. A temporary solution, but a very fat cash cow.

Now, variable speed limit cameras are the way forward. They work. Sure, some people go at 50-55 instead of the 50, but their risk. 99% of people drive dead at 50 the whole way through. I also believe the UK should implement double points and double fines when workmen are present (which is what the USA does - and that works well too).

LOL Im not perfect by any means, perhaps if you lot stuck to sub 100mph we would have a chance of seeing you coming.. and try riding on two wheels instead of one too :thumbsup:

Some very valid (and unbias) points.... especially so of the average speed cams which are the ONLY way forward other than investment in more Traffic Policing :thumbsup:
