    Today I was coming home from work. At the top of a hill I was *possibly* doing about 44 in a 40 zone. I saw a yellow jacket and immediately hit the brake. Sure enough, filth. 200 yards when I passed him, made sure I was down to 35.

    But the cunt most deliberately took a photo of me. Sure I’d been done.

    However, gf came home and told me she got photoed exactly the same 3 weeks ago, in a 20 zone. She’s heard nothing.

    AM I ABOUT TO GET DONE?

    Do they zap you with a speed gun first then quickly take a picture of you? Why was my gf photographed and not got done? I 100% got my picture taken. I’m not sure I 100% got zapped by a gun, because I never saw that happen. How does this shit work?

    Serious knowledgeable answers only please.

    Appreciation in advance.

    Why lol? I just want to know how speed guns work. As in do they zap you, then take a photo? Or is the gun the photo itself.

    I think all police are generally cunts with the odd exception.

    I didn’t expect. I requested. Obviously failed already.

    Where was this? There's been a thing for community speed cameras, they zap you and take a picture of your reg, the DVLA gives them you address and they send you a letter explaining why they'd rather you didn't speed through their area. No points or fine. Fairly effective at stopping people from speeding by all accounts.

    Sounds like one of those nudge unit initiatives.

    Was/is it?

    I would obviously like it to be this and thank you for your reply Bahnhof Strasse.

    Maybe MadeInBedlam has more faith in state apparatus rigidly enforcing out of date speed laws at 4mph over the limit on a downhill road than I care for. How anarchist of him.

    Or, I’m old enough to be driving.

    Are you?

    The fact that you’re driving downhill only makes it more dangerous to be speeding you plum.

    Was it definitely a copper that had the speed gun and took the pic? Could have a significant effect on outcome (as suggested by The Hof)

    Next time, take their pic as you pass so you can be sure :thumbs:

    2 hours earlier, in a different place, driving the school mini bus we’d encountred another speed gun. THIS IS HIGHLY UNUSUAL. Even more so, that coppers speed gun was in a place where if he’d zapped anyone, he wouldn’t have a chance, due to distance, to then photo the driver.

    This is why I’m asking how speed guns work. Because where I got done (perhaps) he had chance to zap me at the crest of the hill, then take a picture 200 yards later.

    Just trying to understand...whether I’ve been done or not. If I have, que sera sera. But how does this fit in with my gfs picture taking, AND the earlier incident in the day where there would have been no time for picture taking.

    AFAIK speed guns aren't used with a photo, they normally have a car/bike parked up a bit further down the road who will be radioed to give you a tug.

    I always thought the camera was triggered by the speed read on the speed gun. ...

    That’s a speed camera. The hand held guns have no camera in them.

    If you really only did 44 as indicated on the speedometer, in a 40 zone, then you're unlikely to get a NIP, which would begin at 46 actual.

    Might be doing something else like insurance checks.

    You say your GF thought she got done - who's the registered keeper of that car? Her or e.g. a lease company?

    planetgeli There's no future in England's dreaming

    No. She got photographed. 3 weeks on, she hasn't been done.

    The RK has to be served with a NIP within 14 days, but if she's not the RK then no limit applies. If she is, she's not been done for anything.

    I know this. She is the RK of her car. She hasn't been done.
