there are cameras in both tunnels...don't think they track speed tho...but they are cctv so if rozzers watchin they can see your actions. changing lanes (if caught!) can land u in serious bother m8 (unless in emergency) solid white lines shouldn't be straddled and they could prob do u 4 a couple of things...careless driving, without due care & attention, dangerous driving, wreckless driving and prob a few others! u been a naughty boy gaz?? lol.

looks like u got away with it tease

av heard that there's camera's in the middle of the main tunnel that record speed but they only turn them on when its quiet as its to hard or them to stop people speeding when its busy cos virtually everyone does it, not sure if its true, just overheard someone talking about it.

There's no speed cameras in the tunnel, they're all uncalibrated cctv style ones.

that's rite ando...they can only guesstimate your speed in conjunction with other cars. they were first put in to check for breakdowns or hold-ups, then they started bein used to check people changin lanes...then speeding...so if u get stopped by tunnel police for speeding, ask them to see the signed calibration checks for their cameras...bet ya they can't supply them...no calibrations...no speeding tickets!!

that calibration is the same wiv normal police all cameras should be calibrated on shift changes for the new officers so if they havent then they can not be used in court, i was told this by a traffic cop.

is rite m8...can't remember the regulations exactly but it goes summit like this = gatso's must be calibrated every 6 months (i think!), traffic vehicles every month and radars & lasers every 2 weeks. as i say not 2 sure, got it all written down somewhere...but as u say no authorised checks = no speeding tickets!
