It may have gone quiet because the media simply don't report it. It's a great solution for the areas that have cars fitted.

Article in the OP says 5 had it and 13 are being fitted... So 18 in the whole country?

Very few indeed!

London have the whole of the central (30mile radius) city covered to automatically charge drivers a city driving toll... 18 cars here means diddly squat really...

They have their "Traffic safety van" which they park up places. Its not a speed camera since I get no radar detector from it and have inadvertantly done 60ish past it once with no resulting cost for that. I am assuming that it is also ANPR since when I have seen it around here there have been many mufti and marked cars parked furthur up and generally one has had someone pulled over and is giving them a ticket.

It may well be a speed camera, but using a laser instead.  So unless your classic radar detector can also detect laser, you may not get any reading at all.  I could be wrong though, that's my understanding on how it works.

It does detect laser and have had it go off a couple of times with the man in a patrol car at the side of the motorway. I'm guessing those guys have a higher tolerance of what they will pull over than a speed camera.

Their speedcamera's are now using low powered, pulsed K band. You need a good modern radar detector to pick these up.

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Yeah, I get stuff all warning on the people mover speed cameras, but they still trigger it. Going the opposite way I dont get enough warning - usually am past the camera and its the rear one that picks it up so way too late to brake.

Also I think now all the motorways have NPR cameras on the gantries along with GATSO and CCTV. Drive your car with no Wof, insurance etc and expect a fine in the post! Likewise stolen etc.
