    front facing gatso

    hypothetically, ur doing 60 in a 40, and a front facing gatso flashes you, you are on a dual carriageway with a big divide in the middle, both sides of the road are lined.

    can you be done?

    i was under the impression that front facing cameras cant do you, well, atleast not normal gatsos...

    my understanding was the lines on the other side of the sual carriagway are for cars racing trying to race on the wrong side of the road to avoid the cameras, so the lines put a stop to it?

    could one be done in this situation?

    If Both Sides of the Roads are Lined then they can get you!

    There Used to be a Camera Like that were i Live (Only took a picture of cars going down the Road so in theory the Back of the Car!) and all the Local Chavs etc would nail it up the road to set it of on people going down! Then one day the Local Double Woppers (*Cough*TOSSER*Cough* Richard Brunstrom in Particular ) thought it would be a good idea to change it so it got you both ways! Needless to say many a young Chav got Points and some lost their Licenses (6 points first 2 years rule)

    If a front facing camera nabs you im pretty sure it aint a gatso
    Almost certain gatsos only work when your driving away from them. Due to the flashs ability to blind oncoming drivers etc...

    the thing is this road has 2 cameras on it, and im pretty sure they are both gatsos, one going down the hill on one side of the road, and the other going up the hill on the other side of the road.

    if it could get you front facing why would they have 2?
