Sneaky New Speed Cameras?

Speed infringement is calculated by the time taken to cross the sensors.
As the cars details are logged with an ANPR system only one picture is needed which is more for driver recognition than anything else.

It does not include data on dedicated ANPR (usually the PIPS P362 system) as used in london and various other cities to varying degrees (inc. my home city Plymouth) the data on which can be seen here-
My patrol vehicle, other Response vehicles and many Traffic dedicated vehicles in the Devon & Cornwall Police area are fitted with the SLATE system but quite a few still also employ the PIPS system due to interoperability with adjacent Police Services in the South West (Avon & Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, South Wales).
PIPS is also increasingly being employed by local Councils, private car parks, toll booths and fuel stations in order to manage parking schemes and enable the issuing of civil enforcement Penalty charge notices (PCN).

However, I know that soon, all of these cameras will be connected, in every lane. And also there will be a shed load of Average Speed Detection cameras coming soon.
Expect the pits of miserableness
I know this as I know someone who works in the development of these cameras.

There are many different means by which you can try and hide from the camera's - blind them with full beams at night, switch lanes, pull over, have a cup of tea then disappear again.
I find that the average speed functionality of the dashboard is helpful for specs, trigger it as you go in and review it as you go out the zone...

BTW, changing lanes on SPECS cameras will make no difference as they are linked via a data network and the designers have covered all the dodges. SORRY.
