2/18/2005UK: More Speed Camera Errors Uncovered
The Mirror (UK) uncovers more speed camera errors.
Steve Lucas, a twenty year old UK law student faced an automatic suspension of his license when a speed camera accused him of driving 115MPH. To prove his own innocence, he took his Fiat Punto to a race track. The car's engine, which makes less than 80HP, could not reach 115 MPH.
In 2004, Kris Haskins, deputy mayor of Portland Dorset, received a speed camera ticket for doing 51 MPH in a 30 MPH zone. Except he wasn't. He used his own technical analysis of the speed camera photo to establish that he was actually driving 13 MPH.
An increasing number of motorists are overturning unjustly issued speeding tickets.Source: ESCAPING THE TRAPS (The Mirror (UK), 2/18/2005)
