Subject: FW: Speed Cameras
The new electronic signs on the M6 were switched on this
The bad news is that they are rigged with the SPECS speed
cameras. This probably
applies to all the new signs being installed on the M62, M60
and M56. SPECS
is a computer-camera based system.
As you go past the sign a digital camera reads your number
When you go past the next sign your number plate is read again.
The computer 'knows'
how far apart the signs are so it can work out your average
speed between the two, or three or four.
The system is fully automatic and will issue a ticket without
any form of human intervention. It does this for every single
vehicle that passes. You will not know you have been caught as
the cameras don't flash. They work 24/7, 365 days a year, and
theoretically, there's absolutely no
limit on the number of tickets that the system can issue. The
whole section of the M6 between Knutsford and Preston is wired,
both ways. The system is set to trigger a ticket at 78MPH.
(Don't take this as a guarantee) Radar detectors will be of no
use as SPECS is entirely passive, there is no laser beam to
Be warned and spread the news!
