  • Hand Held Speed Camera Laws?

    Hey guys! know a few of you on here are members of the police! just wondered if anyone can shed any light on laws or rights where hand held speed cameras are concerned!

    ie...

    do they have to be wearing hi-vis?
    does the area have to have speed camera signs?
    do they capture a picture or just write ur plate down?

    does the area have to have speed camera signs? No only required for camera partnership sites
    do they capture a picture or just write ur plate down? No they will stop you there and then

    Hope that helps

        Are you sure they were police, many communities now have citizens setting up sites to catch naughty drivers, if so all they can do is forward the details to the neighbourhood policing team who may send you a letter telling you not to be naughty again, but they cant prosecute you.

            haha i wasnt being naughty as such!
            was late for golf and got stuck behind a woman doing 23 in a 30! then she pulled off so i dropped it down a gear and went over the bridge and they obviously heard the remus so grabbed the pad and a "camera" of some kind and pointed it at me after i had gone past! i did break a little but was confused whether it was police or not lol!

              Think the one i saw closest to me had blue on the back of a black jacket and abit of blue on her hat which make me think it was them community officers!

                      Had this happen to me a couple of times and both times nothing happened and after asking people it turned out that they were disgruntled local residents trying to scare people and or show the police that there is a speed problem in that area!
