I do not believe the speed indicated on the Infringement Notice is correct.
Speed camera equipment used in speed camera deployments are set up in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications and guidelines. The equipment is tested and operated in compliance with legislation and must be found to produce accurate results prior to deployment.
Mobile speed camera operators test the photographic detection device prior to, during and after deployment to ensure the device is operating correctly. Each device is certified and the calibration date is recorded on the device.
Can I obtain a copy of the camera calibration certificate or other documentation relevant to the camera or deployment?
