This smacks of revenue generation......the 50 limit is I assume to get you to slow down for the booths, and possible queue of cars. Given the excellent visibility and straight in approach on a 3 lane motorway, this hardly requires driver prudence & hence potential speed enforcement in the same way as say an accident black spot with poor visibility or a dangerous junction.

Hence you've been done going 73mpg on a 3 lane motorway, where lets face it you're hardly in danger of failing to stop at the booths or run into the back of someone by misjudging your speed. The safety risk is surely almost inconsequential - if you don't see the queue or booths in time to stop, you're just not paying attention - the difference between 70mph and 50mph is completely irrelevant.

Totally pointless enforcement, IMO.
