And if anyone needs a more definitive reference than Jono, here it is in the highway code: http://www.highwaycode.gov.uk/09.htm

Tis true. I got a £60 and 3 points for doing 68 through a camera on a duel carriagway. Ours is a lwb transporter t30. Best thing is, my father in law works for durham police, and when he asked the chief of police about this restriction, he knew nowt about it!! As a result, the police have put stickers in their vans. Nobody tells you this when you buy a van though!

I think it only refers to goods vehicles. ie those used for business and that have claimed the tax back.
The vehicles tend to be vans but can include 4 x 4s and these are generally identified by having some or all of the rear/side windows filled in.
Need to check the books tonight though.

If your doing 68 through a camera on a dual carrigeway, how does the camera know your a van and not a vehicle allowed to be doing 70?

When they look up the reg number it will be tied to a commercial vehicle.

But don't the cameras only operate if a vehicle is speeding. A speed camera doesn't know what type of vehicle you are. Therefore you could only be done by an officer in a car or operating a portable camera?
