So on my way to work the other night I was going down blackheath hill. There is a speed camera on the hill facing down.
3 cars in front of me, the first car of the three gets flashed.
You would think the second car would slow, but he doesn't and you guessed it he gets flashed as well.
The third car was a bit more savvy (or so I thought). He slowed down and didn't get flashed.
I decided to air on the side of caution and went through at about 20 mph.
Now at the bottom of the hill there is a set of traffic lights (can you see where this is going).
The third car that had slowed down previously went through on a red and triggered the traffic light camera.
Priceless. You really can't fix stupid.

..and I bet you anything when the summons comes through, they'll be posting on their favourite motoring forum complaining about how hard-done-by they are and asking how to get out of paying the fine.  :rolleyes:

Sins we are on the topic of Camera's and Dumb asses, I have a question for you guys and gals, I live here on the Southern most tip of Africa in George, Western Cape, there is a very nice Pass between George and the next town called Wilderness, the left lane is a 40km/h zone and the right lane is 60km/h zone remember this is SA left lane is the slow lane, now my question to you is if you drive 60km/h in the slow lane, can you be fined for doing so?

We have been debating this topic in the office for a while now

where i live there was a speed camera facing as as you came round a blind bend - its been change to the newer version and faces the other way but it faces various signs so i'd be surprised if anyone got caught speeding. i have noticed a spare column - they could change the camera whenever they wanted to catch you out....barstewards

If you aren't breaking the law, they won't "catch you out".  Simples.

true but sometimes your speed creeps up alittle and next thing you know you are breaking the speed limit and kapow you've been flashed.

come to think of it, last week i was sitting in traffic and there was a couple of HGV's in front of me and the trafic eased and started moving again but about 500 yards down the road i spotted a speed camerca van and looked at my speedo and it was showing approx 33mph so with 19's on the actual speed may have been more, i hit the brakes straightaway to slow down. I dont know if the camera was for oncoming traffic or traffic going past it....time will tell. i'll be annoyed  if i have been caught out.
