I have received a letter saying I was speeding I was supposed to be doing 37 on a 30 road – I know for sure that I was not speeding as I am practising driving in 3rd gear and sticking to 30 at all times so what I want to ask is do the speed cameras on the side of the road ever get it wrong?
It’s normally down to human error in the way in which the camera is used or set up rather than down to the machine itself making a mistake. It’s a risk challenging the matter because you would have to take the case to court to get to see all the evidence.
If you were to do that then you would be at risk of higher fines and costs if you plead guilty or get found guilty. You should only take the matter to court if you are adamant that you were not speeding.
