Pity these cameras cannot fine ignorant/arrogant members of the Middle Lane Owners Club.
Speed isn't the killer, it is the frustration caused by drivers who don't appear to know how to look in their rear view mirrors and keeping promptly to the left as soon as they have passed the vehicle they are overtaking!

So why can't the UK adopt some of the ways of the German traffic monitoring forces who can prosecute people who don't pull over?

M25 ones have been active for a good while. By May 2017 three of them were already in the Top 10 UK revenue earners, J17 to J18 (3), J5 to Clacket Lane Services (4), and J18 to J17 (6).

?? I love the fact that cameras are now in competition with each other ????

Yes no more 10% , Apparently the latest cameras are self calibrating so 70 means 70 and lot's of money to be made

Dorset has no motorways so we are unlikely to win this competition. However the camera vans are active, particularly on temporary speed limits through roadworks. On the A338 they caught 500 in 2 days in November and the roadworks have been reinstated today so I expect them to have another bonanza.

This is crazy. Just a money making exercise but I would also argue that its dangerous especially with a zero tolerance setting. People will spend half their time concentrating on their speedos instead of looking at the road. I can see a justification for a variable limit in times of congestion and fines for thundering down the outside lane at 80+ in a 50mph restriction but all this will do is likely increase accidents and make a wedge of cash in fines.
