1 mile per hour in 10,you might be ok as most speed camaras only have the flash in them to deter:cool:

ACPO guidelines - 10% of posted speed limit plus 2mph.

37mph indicated - how accurate is your speedo?. My 600 Alp over reads by 3mph at an indicated 30mph on the speedo - as checked against a calibrated speed gun. The same difference was shown by the hand held GPS we use in the office, so it may be worth doing a quick check with a GPS to see how accurate your speedo is.

Just my ramblings.

There's no guarantee they are even loaded with film.
I once got flashed in London going, um, fast.... putting some distance between me and an agressive **** in an Audi.

Nothing came through the post....

It would be the average speed cameras that would worry me more.

On second thoughts, don't get me started on how wrong cameras are.....

10% plus 1mph. When I last got caught more than half the class (we had speed awareness training instead of points) like me had been doing 34mph.

Depends on where they ae as different police forces have different rules, some are 10%+1, others are +2 or even +3.. Some are set a lot higher than the limit (a lot in a 60 zone will be set for 80)

If it flashes once then it's likely to be a warning, twice and you;ve have your picture taken (as long as the film hasn't run out)

The new digital cameras do not flash at all, apparently.

Although there are ACPO guidelines on "margins" you CAN be convicted of riding at 31 in a 30 limit.
