I was going into my local village and out of the blue were two policeman at the side of the road with a gun on a tripod …I thought where speed cameras were in use signs had to be up to warn you they were possibly there …are the police able to do that without any kind of warning?
Their own guidelines suggest that they shouldn’t, but they often do. At court the court will only be interested in whether or not they have reliable evidence that you were speeding. Warning signs of the speed trap are not required by law I’m afraid.
The only way that you will defend the matter is if you can cast a doubt on the speed alleged.
Have you got any points already? If so, how many? What’s the speed alleged?
