Camera Van

Postby slparry » Sat May 05, 2018 6:50 pm

Riding home from work yesterday I went through Hawarden towards an area known locally as "Tinkersdale", as you're leaving the village it's downhill and there's occasionally a camera van there to scoop up those who've allowed their vehicle to pick up speed. Being honest there's no houses there just a poorly used car park. The camera vans in north Wales are run by a private firm I believe.

Yesterday the camera van was there but I paid it little heed as I knew I was within the 30 limit.

This morning when I logged onto Facebook, I was surprised to see the van, it appears someone checked its plates and its MoT expired in February :D

When you go on the government site to check for valid tax and mot that number plate shows no mot, but if you try to report it the site says the location has to be on a public highway, bugger can’t you get a piccy on the road Steve then I’ll report it :mrgreen:

I saw a van parked out on the A170 near Helmsley at 20:30 on sunday night, I was surprised, I thought they were all tucked up in bed by that time of night, be careful out there.

Aye, Keen in North Yorks. My missus got a speed awareness course cos of one parked up on the super Helmsley to Thirsk road.

I overtook a coffin dodger in a 30 footx6foot jag. 57mph. My fiat Scudo is a commercial vehicle.

The management/regulatory systems set up in all areas of commerce do not want whistle blowers. It causes them work.

Son in law went on a speed awareness course and was sat next to a guy who was on his 5th. That worked for him...not.

Best plan is not to get caught and be super careful.

I recently read on the 'net (so it must be true :lol: ) that vehicles maintained in Crown workshops, don't require an MOT. No idea if this is the case or not?

Its true - 'a vehicle provided for police purposes and maintained in an approved workshop' is exempt.
