What is The Role of Cameras in Speeding Fines?

Out of Millions of speeding tickets that are raised in UK every year, it is commonly perceived that somewhere 2 million tickets are grossly unjustified. The number of ticket raised can vary a lot around the country; in cities and on some stretches of motorway, there are more cameras. But the interesting thing is that, motorists have a common temptation to drive speedily on bare roads.Somewhere 1 million was collected in 2007 from speeding fines in 34 counties that we have in UK. Thames Valley collected an amount somewhere more than 8 million by issuing speeding tickets and was the highest income generator from speeding fines. Next was London which made a sum of 6 millions. More than 6000 cameras are installed all over United Kingdom and the drivers who are driving in those areas are more likely to be caught if they exceed the speed limit either knowingly or unknowingly and especially driving in bigger cities can be stressful and more prone to error.

That’s why it becomes more important that you understand the things that work behind speeding fines and how you can be get caught. Actually the latest monitoring system keeps a watch on your speed from a safe distance and makes up at what speed you are going. If the average speed of your car is higher than the set limit between two fixed point, you will be for sure a getting a speeding fine.

Actually this new system has been especially designed to catch those who intentionally avoid speeding fines. Some people try to go slow when they are near to camera just to avoid fines and go speedily once they cross it. But with new cameras this trick doesn’t work as it calculates average speed between two points. In case you are in that same lane when the camera filmed you on first occasion and you are caught again speeding in the same lane then you will have to pay a nice amount as fine.

Finally, we can draw a perception that changing lanes can help you avoid Driving Ban as the new camera calculates average speed between two points. So if you are changing lanes then you can save yourself from fines. The cameras that have been installed can’t make out that you are speeding if you are driving in different lanes. This way you can save yourself from unfair speeding fines. But your motive should not be to drive speedily and recklessly.
