Signage Law


I haven’t had a notice of prosecution yet, but I think I may have been caught speeding by a camera van just yesterday.

I think I was roughly traveling at around 75mph on a road where there were no signs and have been told by friends that they may not be able to prosecute me, as by failing to provide signage either about the speed limit or the fact that cameras were used on that road, that they cannot legally enforce the speed limit, is this true??

Louise Says:

If you are the registered keeper of the car you should get a notice in the post within 14 days of the alleged offence. What do you think the speed limit for the road was?

If it was a 30 limit then the speed limit can be denoted by a system of street lighting – they don’t need signage other than at the start of the limit.

If it was one of the higher speed limits then there must be terminal signage at the start and signs at regular intervals throughout.
