    Is It Possible To Get Caught Speeding In The Dark?

    Does anyone know if you can get done for speeding in the dark?

    Obviously speed cameras have a flash that works whether it is dark or not, but what about traffic cars using the old "hairdryer guns"? I have never seen one of these being used in the dark.

    Also, what about the vans you see at the side of the road with the guy measuring your speed through the slit in the window?

    Yes you can, the laser/radar guns will still work, the cameras flash, a copper following you with vascar can still catch you, and I've seen plenty of vans out at night so doubt very much that makes any difference.
