Scotland Yard baldscape

#baldscape that features #speed #camera on a British road aimed at road safety or revenue generation? This one is a GATSO that uses radar technology to measure how fast a vehicle is traveling. If a motorist is #driving above the speed limit for that road then serveral photos are then taken . The Gatso uses a powerful flash to show the rear of the vehicle, its registration plate, and calibration lines on the road. Gatso speed cameras are always rear facing. The reason for this is that the speed cameras ‘flash’ will not blind oncoming motorists. However, this also means that the speed camera may not be visible until the last second. In UK these cameras are painted yellow after #motorists complaints felt that previous grey cameras were simply #police traps
