I am being watched!
As I was drving into work this morning I crawled along the ringroad, passing underneath the never ending gaze of the SPECS speeding cameras.
I've got used to these eyes peering at me along almost entire stretch of the ringroad (If you ever travel to Nottingham - beware of them!!)
However, when I turned off this morning and headed towards and over a humpbacked bridge, there was a car approaching from the other direction - lights flashing at me, and the driver frantically signalling while trying to keep control of his car.
Why, I thought, is he doing this? - does he know me? Is there something wrong with the front of my car?
No! - as I went over the bridge I found out. A mobile police camera van parked just over the brow, ready to catch any driver who dared to accelerate to get up the hill, and hadn't checked their speed on the way down.
I'm wondering if it's time to visit a shop to buy a detection system to avoid getting caught out.
I'm not the only one it seems who thinks that we have enough cameras, over in Brian's Culture Blog, he has used photoshop to redesign the look of several, while there are galleries at the Uk speed cameras Gatzo Capital of the UK website, showing the lengths some people will go to to stop them working.
Disclaimer - this is not big, it is not clever, and above all it is not legal.
It should not be done, no matter how annoying these cameras are becoming.
Ok, got that. Don't do it ;-)
