Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

The only restriction on the driver is that they hold a full UK driving licence and are over 18.

Re: Sneaky mobile SAFETY speed camera van - do you warn people?

One wonders whether such matters are discussed on fora frequented by motrons Are illegal sentiments widespread there? Plusminus, there are roadworks near my favourite safety camera, might not be so lucrativ€ for a while :? One should always refer to "SAFETY" cameras! We love safety camera...

Re: Sneaky mobile speed camera van - do you warn people?

I'd like to see satellite tracking of all cars so that keepers can be fined every time they break the limit. There are no privacy issues really as roads are public spaces. All speed cameras should be hidden and mobile. It makes no sense to make them highly visible, about as sensible as requiring st...

Re: Sneaky mobile speed camera van - do you warn people?

Warning other drivers about a police speed trap is a criminal offence - as one man in Cornwall discovered today. The driver was “waving frantically” at other motorists after passing a mobile speed camera on the A30 near Launceston. But, unfortunately for him, one of the drivers he ‘warned’ happened...

Re: Sneaky mobile speed camera van - do you warn people?

Hello there, On a normal 3 lane motorway there is a driving lane and 2 overtaking lanes, only 1 of which is lawful for HGV use. No slow lane, no fast lane, although there is a minimum speed stipulated for their use, but many folk don't know that. It is 40 mph. Up here in the North we have a prolife...

Re: Sneaky mobile speed camera van - do you warn people?

Personally i'm a great believer in the 20mph limit in any built up areas. I drive on the basis that a child will pounce out in front of the car at all times. On the motorways i set my cruise control at 65mph indicated. So the red pickup truck in front of you causing congestion may well be me ... :) ...

Re: Sneaky mobile speed camera van - do you warn people?

My opinion is: Marked speed cameras have a place as I described above. Unmarked mobile units also have a place, I agree, but they are few and far between, as we know. I agree that control of speed is important, although I think that it is the intimidatory 'outliers' which cause by far the greatest ...
