Speed cameras record a vehicle’s speed by using detectors on the road or radar technology, depending on the type of camera.
Some speed cameras combine with traffic light cameras to monitor lights and junctions. They can detect vehicles travelling over the stop line or entering the intersection after the lights have turned red. If the vehicle’s speed exceeds the legal limit or a vehicle runs a red light, the camera is triggered.
If the camera detects speeding, it takes a digital image. The image will catch the vehicle’s colour, type, make and registration plate. It may also capture the face of the driver, depending on the type of camera and which way it’s facing. Not all cameras will get a clear picture of the driver.
The camera will also record the:
- Time and date of the offence
- The speed you were travelling
- The speed limit on the road
