As I'm generally always on the road going between jobs I've been a cruise control set at the speed limit kinda guy for years. My work mates says it's boring and thrashs the van every where. Which makes for a unpleasant journey and also means he's had 3 speeding fines in the last year. Haha. The amount of cameras on the roads now is insane and these new 1s seem pretty effective from what I've read. The fact they are average speed cameras makes it worse. I think picking your nose will land us a fine soon.

Reach for the radio or a polo mint and you've had it! You could also loose a weeks wages for not keeping up with the flip flopping variable speed limit changes on something like the M42. Crazy.

I was driving around the Bristol area the other week and just couldn't believe how many areas/motorways had variable speed limits all over the place :-(

I had a message sent to me the other day warning that all Smart Motorway cameras are now operational and set to trigger at 72mph. Not sure how true this is but the message was said to have come from Transport for London. It gave the camera locations as follows:

M1 J6 - J10
M1 J10 - J13
M1 J25 - J28
M1 J28 - J31
M1 J39 - J42
M25 J7 - J10
M25 J10 - J16
M25 J10 - J23
M6 J4 - J5
M6 J5 - J8
M6 J8 - J10a
M6 J10a -J13
M42 J7 - J9

I seem to remember something in the news about this and London transport denied sending the message.
