    Most speeding offences would normally be dealt with by way of a Fixed Penalty Notice, resulting in 3 penalty points and a £60 fine depending on how fast you were travelling and what the speed restriction was at the time. Generally speaking, the higher the speed, the greater the risk of an instant ban and as a general rule of thumb, when the speeding offence is in excess of 45% of the speed limit, there is a risk of an instant driving ban:

    A ban can vary in length from 7 days to 6 months depending on how many points you already have on your licence. Totting up 12 or more points normally means a 6 months ban will follow.

    For speeds in excess of 100 mph (or more than 30 miles above the relevant limit) the punishment starts at disqualification as opposed to penalty points. However, the decision is at the discretion of the Court and in certain circumstances, a disqualification can be avoided.

Lancashire became the latest county in the UK to announce on TV a massive Speed Camera investment program. With 60 cameras currently, the number is set to rise to 300 over the next two years. Police will also be using long range radar out of mobile vans to trap speeding motorists.

Police will use local media to tell motorists where they will be operating mobile speed cameras. The Department of Transport is also advising 15 forces to post details on the internet.

Roaming units are designed to catch speeding drivers who escape prosecution by slowing down at fixed camera points.

The recommendations are being only made to forces which keep a larger percentage of revenue from speeding fines.

The RAC says telling drivers will be a deterrent and save lives, but motorists in some counties will not receive the information.

Department of Transport guidelines says policemen on the roadside must wear fluorescent jackets and be clearly visible, as must their patrol cars. Police are authorised to use the cameras where there have been four or more speed-related deaths or serious injuries in three years.

The cameras must be moved elsewhere if 30% of the traffic is not breaking the limit, says The Daily Telegraph.

Be Aware
: Northampton has more speed cameras than any other part of the UK. Also it is an area where many new developments in speed camera technology are tried first.

The Truvelo Forward Facing Camera, often installed in a GATSO style housing at the side of the road is not detectable by any conventional radar detector. Only a GPS system will pick these up.

Watch for the Red Lens which uses light and a series of rubber sensor lines in the road to record time taken to travel over a set distance.

These cameras dont flash (it would be dangerous) and were developed to ease identification of the person driving the car when it came to issung a fine. Doesnt work on Motor Bikes as they have no front number plate.

SPECS Average
Speed Cameras
Becoming ever
more popular on Motorways through roadworks and A roads.
Motorway and A Road drivers can expect to see more SPECS cameras. High surveylance video that time you from point to point.

These are designed to prevent motorists from braking at the GATSO camera and speeding up later as they calculate your average speed between points, upto a mile and if you're over the limit, you're booked.

These are normally mounted on bridges or easily identifiable ganties and can be spotted by the infra red detectors either side of the camera.
These cameras are currently undetectable by standard radar detectorsbut will be by a quality GPS, satellite tracking system.
