    Default Speed Cameras.......

    CAN YOU BE CAUGHT BY A SPEED CAMERA IF IT IS FACING THE OTHER WAY. I.E ITS AN OLD STYLE CAMERA FACING THE USUAL WAY IN THE DIRECTION OF THE TRAFFIC TO FLASH THE REAR OF THE CAR. BUT WHEN I DROVE PAST IT IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION IT FLASHED ME, SO IT WAS FACING THE FRONT OF MY CAR. THERE ARE NO LINES ON MY SIDE OF THE ROAD AND NO CAMERA EITHER AS IT IS COMING OUT OF A TOWN. I'M NOT SURE WHETHER I'VE ACTUALLY BEEN CAUGHT. THERE WASN'T ANOTHER CAR COMING TOWARDS ME EITHER THAT COULD HAVE SET IT OFF. DOES ANYONE KNOW?

    These things are so unreliable a passing fly could have triggered it.

    You will know one way or other in the next 2 weeks - good luck.

    lol , Wair for the piccy through the post .
    A lot of cameras dont use measured lines on the floor , they get you head on.
    An old box can be stuff with new technology , best advice is be careful

    you can never be too sure but from my own personal experience i have been flashed twice by an oncoming facing camera once with line and once without and have never been issude with a fine, so fingers crossed i hope it'll be same for you
