    Nice one Al.
    I think the nearest one to St Helens was a Traffic light offence camera, sited at a crossroads near Scotchbarn lane, Prescot. Back then only Liverpool City and Sefton councils seemed keen to have them. There doesn't appear to be that many in Merseyside compared to neighbouring Lancashire, but there is regularly a mobile 'safety' camera van (I hate that term) on both sides of the A580 east lancs road between Windle and Moss Bank, nearly court out by that myself on a couple of occasions.

    Yep, they always sit just over the crest of the hill just after the bridge from Windle lights, know it well.
    By the time you've seen them it's to late. Local knowledge is a must on that stretch re speed.
    I'm out on my Harley later. No worries there then.

    I know what you mean I've had three. Actually after I spent many, many hundreds of pounds my FXDX Superglide sport was reasonably quick, with 101bhp at rear wheel and 103lbft torque or thereabouts.

    Interestingly, criteria of ksi has now changed in God's country, anyone who is overnight admission to hospital (quite likely if your va is any time after 2000) is now a SI.

    This will totally fuck up any stats and make the foaming at the mouth loony brigade really happy.

    It is the inappropriate use of Speed that is dangerous.

    SI = seriously injured.

    Gods country = Scotland.

    Unlike England, Scotland has still kept target reduction on road safety as a national priority where as in England it is down to local authorities, which due to hypothication means camera van's.

    Here at Edinburgh it is now a blanket 20mph zone, which will do nothing for the nutter's on the road, they ignored 30mph after all.

    All hidden camera van's do is catch out the non-locals and the not paying full attention people. All the locals slow down, as they know where they sit, then speed up again.

    They love jammers...that changes speeding into perverting the course of justice which really enhances the performance indicators for the Force!!

    Jamming is illegal, however pulsing back to give additional readings is not.

    Technology isn't it great.

    Gives too high a reading ie; 215mph.

    This falls outwith parameters which means that "all" readings are suspect and cannot be used for prosecution. It will need to be recertified, as obviously there is something wrong.

    It is not an offence to 'broadcast' light at certain frequencies and you are not "jamming" any signal.

    Having a laser/radar detector is always a prudent thing, problem is by the time the detector picks up lase, it is often too late.

    Each Force has its own criteria for max/min distances for capture. It is knowing these and then setting up sensitivity so that you pick up any reflections prior to entering capture zone, fortunately we have a national criteria up here, so it isn't to difficult.

    New ones in post 1 are compact vans like Connects, but haven't seen one of those yet

    I like the chap on the FJR 1300 with his tripod camera - always smiles when you give him a friendly wave
    I saw one of the usual large Transit scamera vans today, plus two of the smaller ones on the A170 on the way to Scarborough and back

    66! So they're not following the ACPO guidelines anymore, despite what it says on their website Maybe you'd have just been offered a speed awareness course if you'd gone a bit faster
