    From the 28th of January the A13 will be a 50mph road but the new yellow camera (average speed cameras) will be activated. It will clock your average speed from one camera to another, also the camera will be able to see if you are using your phone as well.

    Critics are saying even if you are scratching your ear the camera will capture that as your using your phone and will send a fine at home

    Your talking about the normal speed cameras and thats true because there is dispute between councils and police which they are shutting it down. But this is a new thing this calculates the average speed from the time you enter this route to the exit .

    Like it! Probably best to stick under the ton now the cameras are there...

    Anyone know how far the 50 mph zone will cover? I'm down that way sometimes. Usually not doing a ton though...

    I read that the 40 sections has gone up to 50 but the 30 and 40 sections on the fly overs are staying the same.

    I'll find the news story.

    NO, NO, NO, NO. Cannot be used to deal with mobile phone offences. Speeding is an absolute offence much like no insurance. Mobile phones must be witnessed and it must be proven that it was a mobile phone.

    DOn't believe everything you hear.

    Some Police/Councils are planning on turning their speed cameras and red light cameras off at the end of March. It should be in the local press but alot are keeping them on.

    Not all the money is wasted, believe it or not. Alot is used to fund safety schemes to try to improve junctions with a high collision history, improve skid resistance on areas with high accident rates and to help educate children/adults and speeding offenders.

    Not saying all go this way but not all are just money makers.
