confused What the...?!

I'll have my little rant before I get to my question.... this morning while driving to work, there was the same maggot Rav 4 or whatever it is on Dalton rd in Lalor, been there all week with the camera...... so naturally, I slowed down, doing 60 well before I past it and what happens, FLASH!!!! It's a 70 zone by the way!!! So now comes my question, Dalton rd is two lanes, I was in the left lane, so do speed cameras get both lanes or just the closest to the left? There was this guy in the right lane not too far behind me and he looked like he would have been going over 70, but yeah, if it only gets the left lane, it had to be me, and I can swear on my life that I was doing 60 because I spotted the same arsehole car from a mile away, in the same spot as yesterday, and sat on 60 looking at my speedo all the way past him!!! I don't mind copping it sweet when I know I'm in the wrong, but if I get a fine, they can throw me in jail before I pay it!!!!!!!

No need to panic, they pick up both lanes, however if there are two cars in the shot, the police cannot prosecute as they cannot 100% prove which vehicle it was.

the guy being in the other lane causes the photo to be taken at a different Angle as well.
