Hey boys and girls...theres a new unmarked volvo..havent seen it yet..but its dark blue...and not a T5...think its an s50...not sure havent actually seen it yet...but the cameras an lights etc are VERY VERY well hidden apparently.
Its brand spanking new and paid for by the council as part of the roadsafe scheme...targeting mobile phone users and speeders...got ANPR and VASCAR in it...and will be driven by advanced drivers....so yes it WILL chase you...
as soon as i get the reg plate/any more info I will update!

Whats VASCAR?

Are they on a no-tolerance aswell, or is it still the 10% + 4mph over the speed limit guidelines.

They just work out the time it took you to get from point a to point b, and then get the average speed from the distance covered between the two points.

Either way, VASCAR is one of the tools that can catch you speeding.

So if your on a 50mph road, i,e new ferry bypass. and the a-b points are at either end. then you can do 70 half the way, as long as you only do 30 for the rest of the way, lol

Lol yeah, summit along them lines.

SPECS are the ones that you can usually avoid, the ones that are randomly along some UK motorways. Tis good because it means if you creep over the speed limit for a short while, even by a great amount, it gives you a chance to redeem yourself lol.

Just write off to DVLA give a fair enough reason
that you want the details of the reg plate,

and wam bam, you have the details of a car..

Its all over watch dog at the moment,
how these private parking companies just acquire the details
willy nilly..

I meant whilst on the road, using a ANPR mounted on your rear bumper reading the reg of the car behind, accessing the database and telling you if it is a copper.
