SpeedSpike can be deployed as main road speed enforcement on motorways, urban speed enforcement in town and city centres or local short distance speed enforcement outside schools and colleges. By linking anywhere up to 1000 cameras in any one system SpeedSpike can enforce speeds ranging from 20 - 140mph across an entire road network.

Just wondering on which roads they'd be enforcing a speed of 140mph...
Certainly not the M25  Grin

So, so long as I do 150mph I won't get caught?

How long before a device has to be legally fitted by manufacturers that reports directly to the police when a vehicle exceeds a speed limit Roll eyes

Re: New type of speed camera just got legal approval

… and limits your speed to 10mph until you pay the prescribed fee? Crazy

We are now aware that the police have used traffic information that you have helped to create to
place speed cameras at dangerous locations where the average speed is higher than the legally
allowed speed limit. We are aware a lot of our customers do not like the idea and we will look at
if we should allow this type of usage.
