Default London Speed Cameras

Just a heads up for all that travel in and around the London area.

All speed cameras are being replaced or moved in the near future.

Many of the red light cameras are going to be dual function which means if you go though the red light you get a flash but the new feature is that the act as a speed camera when the lights are green.

They can be easily spotted as there are white dashes halfway though the junction.

To sum up - don't speed though green lights - stop for red lights.

I assume the old scamera revenues have been running low,hence the new enthusiasm.Very few of the gatsos around here have been loaded for a long time,so the coffers must be empty.
