If you get caught by a speed camera and end up gitting points and a fine, will the points add extra to your insurance premium..?

I got caught doing 49 in a 40 limit by a sneaky little twat in a plain van with a camera in the back... bastid thing is I remeber seeing him after he'd done me... This is the very first time I have ever been caught.... I am gutted...?

You'll end up with 3 points I suspect, which doesn't normally effect your insurance. Get any more and it will though.

Van

Almost hidden in the trees , I saw him a few hours earlier... This camera I beleive was a revenue generator... as there were no schools / houses or anything within a mile.... also there was a satic camera less than 200yds away... buggers:mad:

It may affect your insurance slightly, mine went up by a few pounds when I got my first 3 points, its when you get higher than the SP30's they tend to add more on

Was he hidden in the tree's could you not see him??

If so then this should be void as all Police must show themselves by law. I know someone who was let off after a bike caught him but there were no signs and he was around some wall....

Gits! :(

All speed camers & coppers with LT20/20's must by law now be in plain sight, not undercover, not hidden or obstructed. There must also be speed camera signs displayed on the road in question for (xxx yards) a distance in front of the place you were caught.
However, they can still hide GATSO's beside road signs, they are getting away with the excuse that it's a conveniant source of power, WHAT and they couldn't run a cable for a metre!!!
Ask the old bill to come to court and prove that they were in plain view and in a marked car with speed camera signs up and i'll bet they don't turn up. they didn't when I went to court (£10 fine for no seat belt, £40 for talking on phone)
