Yeah I KNOW for a fact I went under them two weeks ago at limiter speed... - - - - - actually I'm lying AGAIN, sorry guys, here's my confession.

Since I like to LIE about my onroad experiences to impress my online chums I know that my REAL speed which I'm ashamed to admit was only 65 miles an hour could NEVER EVER have set them off anyway...

They are all around junction 6 and stick up a LOT you can't miss them, Rear facing Gatso types sticking up from the gantry

After reading this I googled speed cameras I found out about one that I never knew existed!

DS2 camera - Basically two grey poles where a speed camera car will connect to one post.

The other post will have a sensor embedded into the road (hidden).

I'm going have to be a bit more careful down in those "high speed rural roads"

I thought the whole point of Cameras was they were supposed to be visable? Holes in the ground and overhead grey boxes on Motorways where does that fit into the rules of visability.

Yeah the DS2 gets around the visibility rules by being attached albeit temporarily to a Bright yellow Policeman...

SMILE ! You're on Police Camera Action baby !
