Speed camera signage

Short guide as to whether speed cameras (fixed or mobile) need to have signs or be marked

There are guidelines set down that by each police force that state whether a camera be it fixed or mobile, should be marked, signed or in a specific position. These however are guidelines and policies set by each individual police force and not law. When a Police force wants to plough the money received from speed cameras back into road safety schemes (sometimes referred to as the netting off scheme) then they are required to follow guidelines but again this isn’t law. If you have been caught speeding and feel that the Police didn’t conform to requirements then you are entitled to complain to the Safety Camera Partnership but using this as a defence in court will not stand up.
