Average Speed

Postby PlaYa on Wed May 30, 2012 2:48 pm

So in my infinite wisdom... I assumed that when they removed the camera's from those sticks on the side of the bridges at kromboom and wetton road bridges - that there was no more trapping... that is until I got my first fine yesterday - doing an average 117 through that stretch. :oops:

The moved the bladdy camera's under the bridge - so look up and say cheese next time you go through there at speed... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I;m expecting a few more... some at slightly higher speeds :oops: :oops: :oops:

I did and I behaved when I saw the camera on the side on those white poles. But I though they had been removed for maintenance or something as the poles are there but no camera's. Until I looked up going under the bridges and saw the little cameras peeking at me :facepalm:

Bwahahahaha - oh well. You live and you learn lol

Do they trap speed as well - I mean if I go past the first one at 120 but turn off. Can they still fine me for going the 120?
