Re: Fecking speed cameras
There is a Gatso in Dartford that used to be triggered by (I think) branches moving on a nearby tree. It flashed as I drove towards it on a number of occasions, and left me with an anxious couple of weeks. Notinhg ever came of it, though, and I haven't noticed it doing it lately, so either the radar gun has been shifted, or the offending branches cut down (or whatever it was).
...... Thinking about it, I wonder if the beam can be reflected off a stationary object (eg a parked van) behind, and then onto my car as I drive towards the camera.... then the speed-adjusted reflection comes off my car, back onto the van (or whatever), and back to the detector, thereby triggering the flash??? The picture thus taken shows a stationary van! And confuses the poor person looking at the piccies???
