Speeding 38 in 30mph
I was on way along a 60mph road and the limit changes to a 30mph, I was slowing and reducing speed, as I crossed the threshold of the 60-30mph, there was the police van sitting hiding behind the hedge just 3/4m after the speed limit change with the camera on the side of the road.
The only time you could see the van was when you passed the limit change. I have then been issued the Notice of Intended Prosecution. I had a colleague with me and we both feel that it was entrapment especially sitting back out of sight on the speed change, is there anything that can be done?
I’m afraid that the police are entitled to hide and do not have to put up warning signs of a speed trap. The court will only be interested in whether or not you were speeding at the time of the alleged offence if you challenge the matter and take the case to court. Sorry.
Have you got any points already? If so, how many?
