    Im hoping im ok as the van was driving towards me when i had pulled over and i would of thought it would of been hard to take a pic of me when he was coming towards me.

    Mobile cameras can, the little ones that hang about schools and what not

    yes they could AFAIK

    You do seem overly paranoid about these cameras though, either you are doing something wrong, or maybe you're just not photogenic, who knows.

    And the answer to both of the questions is No.

    lmao



    He said 'speed camera van'

    Maybe worth having a look at this website pepipoo.com/
    It may answer any other questions you may have.


    BTW I dont think you have anything to worry about.

    Didn't see an edit tag by OP. Give the guy a break. He's asking a question and doesn't deserve to be ridiculed.

    Firstly, if you were pulled in then they wouldn't know if you were stopped with your engine off or just sat there ready to pull off, so that's a no go.

    However, I would have thought that any type of camera or police witness (i.e. the van driver) that observes you on the phone whilst driving would be able to use that as evidence. If it was a speed camera van then it wouldn't have been recording whilst driving.

    You do seem to have a few problems when your on the road

    You perhaps worry unnecessarily

    they can pick you up for having your socks on the wrong feet

    Didn't mean to ridicule the OP. I was just quoting 'Meadsy4742' post. I still can't stop laughing.

    But I can understand the tense moments. Been through that so many times. It will pass once no ticket turns up in a week's time. I agree with pghstochaj that when they are driving they will not be shooting normally. Besides they will have to point the laser on you to shoot. Why would they do that specially when you are on the opposite lane and they have nothing to suspect. If you were on the same lane and if they were shooting for speed chances are that you will get caught for texting even if you were withing speed limit coz in that case they will have your picture and charge you for using mobile phone. (I know you were not doing that while driving). So don't worry it just one of those days. It will pass.

    worry pot :-D
