    Average Speed Cameras


    4 Not allowed!
    Whilst driving down the M23 through the road works, I was surprised at the number of cars shooting along but then braking at the camera. I'm used to average speed cameras on the M6 but wondered if those who rarely us the M23 know how they work?

      Do they work though? I'm not sure they do.

      A younger colleague of mine was worrying for weeks after he was certain he was speeding through them, never heard anything.

      Maybe regular users of this road know something we don't.

      No point in slowing down to the limit at the camera if you've been doing way over the limit in between the cameras i would of thought that's how they catch you , on average over a alloted distance , it's the way forward apparently , smart motorways .

      They work, years ago I got a ticket. First time I’d come across them, it was early on a Sunday morning and there was no work going on and virtually no traffic so I ignored the warnings about 50 mph average speed cameras and drove through at 60ish and was seriously pissed to get a ticket.

      I haven’t tested it since

      What’s the difference between an average one and, say, a top of the range speed camera?

      Whenever I come across an average speed camera I pull in, read a paper for 5 mins and then floor it

      M23 and M20 just before junction 10 average speed camera are working, work colleague who has been caught by M20 one, and I know someone who installed the M 23 cameras.

      Also advised M20 camera on the gantry showing variable speeds do work.

      What’s going on with the M23 anyway? Roadworks from M25 to Crawley until spring 2020. Anyone know what they are doing? The road surface is far better than the M25 - which is awful

      They certainly work when the A23 was being widened at Handcross hundreds got tickets.
      No doubt many will do so on the M23

      Upgrading to smart motorway so basically no hard shoulder and occasional emergency lay bys
