Motor insurance: Speed camera 'is faulty'

Friday, 22 February 2008

Drivers have claimed that a speed camera in Great Amwell has been capturing motorists who are not breaking the law.

People have written on an internet forum that they are surprised the camera has been playing up and that they are sure the limit was kept to, reports the East Herts Herald.

One motorists stated that he drive past the device twice in a bid to see if it genuinely was faulty.

"In case I was mistaken I decided to give it another go, so I went past it again, this time keeping to just under 40mph. Again I was flashed," he commented.

Another suggested that the camera may in fact impede other people's driving because it is flashing in a seemingly safe stretch of road. In response, an official at Hertfordshire Highways said that the matter is being investigated.

Motorists may find that their motor insurance premiums are negatively impacted on if they are caught breaking the law.

Officials in Castle Bromwich, Solihull, recently stated that new speed cameras are to be introduced on Chester Road
