Great on a dual carriageway - good chance to nip past 'em going at the speed limit in the traffic.

5mph - you're lucky. We've a speed camera local to us in a 50mph limit. Eedjits all slow down to about 35mph, which drives me nuts

Maybe they have an alfa speedo? You're doing 10MPH over your real speed.

That's kinda scary, it shows that they have no idea what the speed limit is in that area so they are playing safe as it could be a 30-40.

Don't people look at signs?

Its a piece of dual carraigeway which was two lane/70mph until some poor soul was killed there a couple of years back. They changed the layout to single carraigeway with a speed camera. There are big 50's painted on the road surface, but it makes no difference. Unbelievable!

Well, you fail for not making sufficient progress.

And I'm officially a speedophobe.

Re: People who drive 5 mph below the limit through speed camera's

This annoys me too. When will people realise that their indicated speed is always a little bit faster than they're actual speed. So if they're on the money on the speedo they'll be ok.
