If there is no marking on the road where a speed camera is

This answer was rated:

if there is no marking on the road where a speed camera is placed how can they measure the speed that is being done?
The notice states I was doing 58 in a 50 zone, I don't usually speed, especially near a school, but I had Just been told my brothers cancer has returned and has been given approximately 1 month left.
If I report this to the camera enforcement where do I stand

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

Was this using a laser please?

it is a standard yellow box speed camera, but no road lines visible as they have been worn away and never been rplaced

If its laser then you can't contest it. Anything other than this then you could potentially contest it.
The Police would have to prove you were doing above 50mph.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
All they have said is that they have photographic evidence
I am going to town tomorrow and I intend to take photographs of both the speed camera and the road showing no road markings if I send that to the Camera Enforcement Dept will this be enough to contest or will I have to take it to court?

Its likely if their view is that it is valid, you would probably have to take it to Court.

Can I clarify anything for you?
