Common myths busted.

SPEED camera operator Steve is happy to bust a few myths surrounding speed cameras.

Q You must have speed camera signs: "You don't - we do that just to warn people."

Q You must have two speed limit signs when limits change (eg 40mph down to 30): "You only need one but we tend to put two up, again just to help people."

Q Motorbikes aren't clocked because their plates are on the back: "I only need to swing round, look out of the front window and write it down."

Q The cameras don't work as well in the dark: A quick switch of camera setting and pulling out some infra-red lamps quickly dispels that one.
