It is not a myth - most speed cameras have white lanes painted on the road. They take 2 photos and measure how far you have travelled between the 2 flashes. If you drive on the wrong side of the road you avoid the white lines altogether!!! Also the radar has to be lined up properly to only take photos of cars in the right lane otherwise cars coming towards it would set it off al the time.

It's true-for a different reason though.

Nah I am on about the Gatsos and Truvelos.

I thought they were only using SPECS for tax evading - obviously they have found another even more evil use.

Now I will have to drive like even more of an idiot than usual................

errr... they always were speed cameras. SPECS = Speed Enforcement Camera System. (Wonder why they put a P in...SECS )

Technically they can use any SPECS/CCTV camera for checks against the PNC using ANPR to nab you for TAX offenses etc..
