Hmmmm

Point 1) Its illegal to Speed
Point 2) Speed Kills
Point 3) Flashes cameras operate 24hours a day, come rain hail or in odd cases sun!

Maybe someone can tell me this, when do most serious acidents occur, day or night???

Also they wont work where the inital speed variance is +/- 7.897 ks, so either speed up or slam on the brakes!

Minge are not most permanent speed camera's triggered by the two elements on the road, which are spaced about 1.5 metres apart????

AP is the expert, however the normal tripod mounted need the vehicle spped to be in a certain margin!

The ones on poles (fixed) have a hexagon shape sensor in the middle of the lane where you just have to steer towards kerbside to drive around it and you miss it all together (providing no one has parked on the kerbside) however I have not tried above the speed limit so I would take it with a grain of salt.

In SA the cameras work day, night, sun, rain, both directions etc etc. But if you dont speed you dont get caught.

Its not the speed that kills, its the sudden stop that kills.
