Motorway variable speed limit cameras

Postby mcharnley » Sat 21 Sep 2013 9:19 pm

Do they still detect speeding drivers when the signs are not in operation? Saw one flash today on the opposite carriageway on the M62 when the signs weren't on.

I would imagine that when a variable limit is not in force they reset to 70mph (or whatever leeway above 70 that is allowed)

No as said above, only the M62 system which is now live, which are the first to use 24 hr national speed limit monitoring.

All the others are set to whatever the variable limit is at the time unless it is off i.e 70 mph in which case there is no monitoring
If you are worried about breaking the 70 limit, get a series 3 2.25 and you never need to worry again :lol:

Cameras don't have much to do with variable speed limits but traf­fic loops built into the road sur­face do.
