Why does everything have to be nickle and dimed on here?
You and your neighbours can club together and buy a speed camera if you've got enough money. What you can't do is set it up at the roadside and issue fines - though you might be allowed to put it in a roadside garden, for instance (and not issue fines). The linked article gives no indication of what permission would be necessary to install one of these phone detectors at the roadside: planning permission? Maybe it comes under permitted development? Maybe the same as erecting a road sign?
I wasn't saying we bought a speed camera as a Parish Council. I was referring to the discussion about signs that display speed, which apparently have only a tiny effect, so that's money wasted.
