    I doubt it will have gotten you. (aparently theyre accurate up to a mile) but normally focused very close to the van. im sure youl be fine!

    Yep technology these days means that they can pick up your speed from upto 1/2 a mile away. Just have to watch your post and see if one comes or not for you!

    the PC in charge of the gun has to believe your vehicle was speeding he/ she can then take a reading from that point, most lasers reach about 350m. So unless you were blasted up to 50 youll prob be safe
    all about the looks not being practical

    They would have seen you before you see them.
    They are usually set to 10% + 2mph
    40 = 46
    50 = 57
    static cameras (yellow meanies) can be set as low as 31mph!
    Cop with cam will usually pull you over for the 10% + 2mph rule ( i got pulled for 36mph in a 30 )
    i could whinge about getting points and fines but the bottom line is DON'T SPEED!
