    Speed Cameras

    Thought you might be interested to know that, following the UK Government's freedom of information act,
    you can now get access to ALL speed camera offences registered in the last 12 months.
    Did you know that every time your car goes past a speed camera, even 1 mph over the set limit, it is registered onto a database?
    You only get a ticket if you are way over the limit or (this is the bit I didn't know), if you receive over 10 near misses,you will be classed as a serial offender and get a ticket the next time you go just over the limit.
    This is why you hear of people being done at 34 mph in a 30 mph limit area, whilst others doing 39 do not.
    You can check what has been registered against your vehicle at the following web address: UK Speed Camera Database. Check to see if you have been caught speeding
    Just enter your car registration. If there is any photographic data collected regarding your vehicle, click on the camera window to see a copy of the photograph.

    I was wondering how my car got to Cornwall, it's never been out of Wales, thought my cherished number plate had been cloned.
