Speed Cameras

Hey with semi permanant speed cameras, the ones how they put like a metre in from of a car (box with a flash on top) do they only detect you if your on side of the road its on? For example if the camera is on the left hand side of the road, your on the left hand side, breaking the speed limit, it would flash, but just say your on the right hand side or opposite side, will it still detect you? im in melbourne. And are there these devices at night?

thanks

Yep they definately get you both ways, and at night (I'm speaking from experience here)

Looks like you might be contributing to the Fat Cats fund snavy.....

Ok... I know that they can get you both ways... but what about when there is traffic on one side of the road??

eg.. Delhi rd, lane cove. There is a perm speed camera on the north side of the road facing east.

That road is VERY BUSY and often in the morning east bound traffic is at a stand still.

So the westbound traffic... there number plates would be blocked from view by the traffic going eastbound.

whats the go with that?

does that mean, that it can only get traffic on one side of the road when there is no cars on the other?

yeah see im confused i rememeber bout half year ago i went down a 60 zone at 80 but the speed camera was on the other side of the road, didnt get booked. Im not talking bout the new cameras just those old ones you see sometimes, the ones that are a box with a flasher on top of it.

They say they can get you on both sides but if you look the marks in the road from the sensors are usually only on one side even when they have signs saying other wise.
