Fixed speed gatso camera

Recommended Posts

I was travelling through a roadworks with a temporary speed limit of 20mph.

There is a gatso fixed speed camera within the roadworks signposted 40mph.


I mistakenly went past the camera at 35 to 40mph thinking that the 20mph limit is after the camera.

After driving back the temporary 20mph limit is definitely before the 40mph gatso.

Have I been fined?

they wouldn't bother to reassign it's speed limit for the short period of time for the Rworks run its course.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s would collapse overnight.

If they are going to take action against you they have 14 days from the offence to serve a NIP on the registered keeper of the vehicle.  So if you are the registered keeper you'll know for sure in a couple of weeks (assuming your address details are correct on your car's V5C and any NIP does not go astray in the post).


If you are not the registered keeper (ie you don't hold the V5C because eg it's a company car, or a lease car, or it's on finance) you may not know for several weeks or more.  Any prosecution for speeding must be initiated within six months, so that's the longest you'll need to wait.


If you get a request to identify the driver, you must do so regardless of when you receive it.


FWIW, dx100uk is probably correct and you won't hear any more - but you never know...
