Thats whats wrong with the cameras.

If the traffic police had pulled you in they would have just given you a lecture and a warning, if thay had even bothered.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !

I see the Gatso camera, check my speed 40mph, carry on and..... FLASH! "What was that???" then FLASH again!

I carried on thinking that, it was a 40mph road, a week later I got the letter of NOTIFICATION OF INTENDED PROSECUTION for doing 40mph in a 30!

So I went back to that road, It goes 40, 30, 40! I couldn't beilive my luck, I must of of bypassed the sign when I pulled into tesco!

Again ¤¤¤¤¤¤¤s!!!
Go back to the area and do the same, not at those speeds though, lol. When you pull into Tesco's look to see if there is a 30 sign, if there is then fair cop. If not, when you leave do the same, if there is no sign then you have got a case for appeal. They might have only put one along that bit of road and missed out the turn off/on.

That is bad luck. (As a side note though, isn't the national speed limit 70mph on a dual carriageway?)
