Well I never knew that! I always slow down when I go past speed cameras in any direction, firstly cos it gets you in the habbit (just incase you dont realise one day) and secondly because it shuts my GPS system up haha!

If I am going over the speed limit of the camera, as I get near to it, the GPS system beeps repeatedly until I get to or under the correct limit.

Sometimes there are mobile cameras in the opposite direction of speed cameras (there is sometimes on the one on old chester road heading away from the rock)

Other than that I speed through them in the opposite direction lol. Technically, they shouldnt go off when they are facing oncoming traffic as the flash can be a hazard, but there are new infra-red ones which don't flash so watch out for them!

thats why i said it must be facing the right way - not only to detect the speed of the car but to flash in the direction of the traffic, not towards oncoming traffic. If it were to flash you as you were heading towards it, it has no road markings to judge your speed from smile

Its not the lines that detect how fast your going, nxt time you see a speed cam their is a gap between the cam and the lines this is the area which detects your speeding so after that gap its is safe to put you foot down. I do it all the time when racing people they cant understand why it didnt flash

thats probably why that one went off cas its battered and facing totally the wrong way, must of detected something which set it off. still needs the road markings to judge the speed
