Bob might be a w@@nker for speeding in the first place but I've seen several people get caught out on that road by those cameras. The position of the one in the picture is on a Dual Carriageway after a long sweeping, banked bend...tempting if your in a rush!

I nearly got caught on the one on Northam bridge at 2.30am, road deserted. Thankfully the camera still had the bag over it. The moment you think you've been caught is bad enough, the moment you get the letter must be more than enough to reconsider speeding anywhere or at anytime.

It would seem from the original post that Bob is not 'reconsidering' speeding:

Bob is certainly going to be a lot more careful from now on. A road angel and a can of hairspray might be on the agenda too!

You don't need roadangel if you are running tomtom or autoroute with gps there are free speed camera databases. Don't help mobile ones though!!!

That's interesting. I'm on the verge of getting a bluetooth gps thingy for my pocket pc, and running tomtom on it. Laser says its the bees knees. I've been using a Navman for the last few weeks and it's absolute crap.

I use a bluetooth gps - have also used my old garmin 12 with a cable.

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/

Looks like they now charge for membership -still it's only 2 - really works very well - far better than the service my mate was paying far more for!!!

TomTom is fantastic - and you can download all sorts of voices etc for it - John Cleese - ozzy osbourne etc etc!!!

Much prefer it to the in car systems and always upgradable.

Mmmm..... Yep still a wanker.

OK that particular bit of the road doesn't have houses round it, but I bet he didn't speed up just for that bit, or consider slowing down afterwards.

But mainly for not standing up like a man to take responsibility for his actions.

And because I said so.
