Speed Camera Warnings

This is information for drivers in the London area

From the 15th February 08 all the Speed Cameras in the Variable Speed Limit section of the M25 near Heathrow Airport (JCT 10-15) are going Digital and the activation limit is being lowered.

They are currently the older film type cameras and set at 90mph when the Variable Limit Signs are not in operation.

The new digital cameras are going to be set at the normal 10% of the speed limit + 2mph (80mph + and youre taking a risk basically) when the signs are not in use i.e. national speed limit. I cant confirm the activation limit when the signs are set (variable limits showing) but believe it would be the same 10% + 2mph of the speed shown by the sign at that time.


I hope this saves a few of you getting points on your licence!!!

Thanks, didn't appreciate that I could have got away with 90mph up until the change.

I quite often do very high speeds through those things but never realised they actually work! Thought there were just lines on the road to make you think you could get done but didn't realise they would have speed cameras on motorways. Haven't been done but will keep an eye out in the future.

:-D I think a lot of people don't know what speed they can go upto, so they either stick to around 70/80 mph or they teter just under 100 mph, knowing if they get caught they will get fines and points but not automaticfally disqualified :whistling:

In Humberside they have had theirs set lower for ages. I was done for doing 79 on a motorway (Just before M180/181 junction) during a nice summers day. I Choose to attend a days seminar instead of taking the points, what a waste of time.

Best to get something like a Road Angel. Not only does it show where the cameras are. but also your GPS speed (which is a LOT more accurate than your speedo)

M180 must be cursed, I was done last April for doing 81mph at 4.30am. I never even saw the camera so i am unsure if it was a static camera or a mobile one.

Does anyone know if a traffic cop gets you from his car does he come and stop you or is it the same principal as the static speed cameras.......... ie you get a letter in the post....
