    Speed cameras in Birmingham 7th Oct 16 at 7:42 AM
    Hi all.

    Stupid me got caught speeding yesterday. Old Gatso camera, definitely flashed twice.

    Location was Soho Way in Smethwick.

    https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.4959615,-1.9603304,3a,75y,312.26h,89.41t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sofK_fz7t_9uLWuWY6Lquag!2e0!7i1 3312!8i6656

    I thought all of these Gatso cameras were turned off in 2013?

    Can anyone confirm whether there are still Gatso's working in the West Midlands?

    How long does it take to get a NIP come through anyway?

    Don't need people telling me that speeding was wrong, it was a stupid mistake.

    There's a set not far from me, just out of interest do they just read the front number plate or both? (on a bike and assume from the positioning that it is just the front but haven't risked it ).

    Hopefully both if the standard of driving by motorcyclists in my area goes by. Driving through local village at 30 mph with 30 mph limit and double white lines some toss pot roared past on other side of road without a care in the world, yes you've guessed it on a motor bike.

    And we all deserve to have accidents and donate our organs too, don't we?
