Average speed cameras being introduced around London


Recommended Posts

As a regular user of both the North Circular and the A40 I've noticed some new small yellow overhead speed cameras have recently been installed.

 

They are average speed cameras and are apparently being trialled on the A406 and A40 as well as at a couple of other locations in London from September 2015.

 

As ever, take care especially if you are going to/from the Ace café....

Won't be long before we are screwed on everything

I thought with an all blue government this sort of crap would be consigned to the scrap heap where it belongs

Only here once

There are a load of new SPECS camera on the A12 up by Ipswich too. Tiny, and quite well hidden in truth as well!

Unfortunately they will eventually go up on all major roads I suspect (the remit is that someone has to have been killed on that stretch of road), pushing people who want to drive a sports car/performance car onto smaller, more dangerous roads. Stupid really.

 

I hate Average speed camera's

Yes, let's blame responsible speeding motorists for everything - you know the ones who are giving 100% attention to what they are doing, driving!

 

But oh no, let us not blame the people driving whilst not paying attention due to:

 

peeling a banana; applying make-up; on the phone; sending/reading texts; using their laptop; reading a book; writing down notes; looking left whilst chatting to their passenger more than they are looking forward: not using their indicators; not looking before pulling out either from a junction or when overtaking; etc etc etc.

 

All of the above I have seen / experienced whilst driving this year alone.  Yeah speed kills - sometimes, but more often than not it is stupidity that really kills. However, catching a speeder is "easier" hence the camera's. Heaven help us if we ever get back to actual proper policing of the roads to make them safer for all.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Shouldn't worry too much, nobody ever goes to the Ace these days :-(. Whinge over.

Trevor.

I'll get around to it at some point.

Harsh but fair, Trev. We got seven to Wed's meet. (see my updated post for pics) 

 

Where is everyone?

 

Perhaps Hexagon can bring an Evora 400 to Sep meet - that should get a few more to turn up.

But remember one thing: don't lose your head to a woman that'll spend your bread: Lotus Turbo Esprit (89-11); Lotus Esprit GT3 (12-14): Lotus Evora S (14-17); Lotus Esprit V8 SE "UK Last 15" (18-...)

Sorry I didn't get to say hi but hadn't realised it was you in the black Evora. Sizona and I were there but with the family on the way back from a meal out so in the Disco.

Trevor.

I always used to its only the last one or two I haven't due to the lack of interest, you all know when it is.

If we have our new  Evora 400 in time for the September meet at The Ace, it'll be our pleasure to drive it there!
