hi If a mobile speed camera is placed more than 200

Customer Question

hi If a mobile speed camera is placed more than 200 meters from a 30 MPH sign
from within the restricted area looking out , is there a chance it may be
recording the speed when the car has not even entered the restricted area ,
also some 30 mph signs are sited just before the first house of the village
and others seem to be at least 200 meters from the first house , what regulations are there regarding the site position of the sign .
Thanking you

From Frederick Craggs Thankyou having problem opening the

site but this page is ok . will get the information tomorrow ,

if you have google earth and type in post code YO7 4SB there

is a clear picture of the place in question , mobile camera

was parked near the first house approaching from the east

a bare patch of earth shows where it was parked , will bring

you details about street lamps and any other information tomorrow.

Thanking you ,

Ok. I'll look this up when I get back if thats ok?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

To Jo C

will respond to the site as soon as possible

having trouble opening some of the sites ,


I don't know wether you have had chance to look on Google

earth yet but I have got a reasonable accurate measure

of the distances you asked for ,

There are three street lamps in this hamlet the first one coming from the East is 240 yards that's 216 meters from the 30 mph sign , the camera was sited 175 yards 157 meters from the 30 mph sign ,this was just in front of the first house on the south side of the road coming in from the East ,


There is also another 30 mph sign on an old part ot the A 61

which 60 meter west of the sign on the main road ,

this virtually means someone leaving the village passes

through a speed limit cancelling sign before they get on

the main road , a bit of a contradiction .

You will probably understand it a bit more if you could

view it on Google Earth ,

Yours Faithfully
