Is Bob saying he was shot by a forward facing camera on the opposite carriageway? Or, is there a forward facing camera in the centre reservation?

Neither. The camera is on the left of the road as you drive towards it.....

This is getting confusing. Did the camera flash into Bob's face? If yes, that's fekkin dodgy, if no, should Bob have noticed the yellow camera back? Is the camera on the left or right? Does Bob really know? Was Bob drunk? Was Bob driving? Was Bob involved with some other activity at the time?....

In retrospect, it might have been a poor idea for Bob to get Tim to present this question to the ribnetters.

Most of the truvelo camera's in this part of Hampshire are forward facing.. They do create a dazzling flash when set off.. Or so I have been told..

All bob remembers is seeing a flash as he drove past the camera. He wasn't drunk or doing anything else at the time. Bear in mind this was a few weeks ago so the details a tad sketchy!

I think Bob has decided to confess to his terrible crime and take the points, on the basis that he doesn't want to pervert the legal system.

Well done Bob - it seems he is an adult after all!
