On a more serious note I have often wondered why the UK law permits the use of speed camera give away locations on sat navs TomToms and mobile cameras. Surely because of the French law banning the locations of their speed camera locations it is only a matter of time before the UK follows what the French have done and ban the use of such devices.. We have one of the strictest laws anywhere in the world and Iím surprised that the use of camera locations is actually allowed.
I love the fact I know when a safety camera is coming into view and before the camera sees me. Surely there must be a way round these laws by renaming, redrawing sort of marking the cameras with placers where it is dangerous to stop your car, . Anyway until the law is applied in the UK and Northern Ireland I'll keep using my camera database. Oh? Sorry for the caps locked my bad, the keyboard only types in caps locked need a new keyboard.

Department for Transport - Road Safety Bill 2004 note 2:
Speeding "Safety Cameras form an integral part of a successful road safety strategy, strict rules govern the positioning of cameras to ensure that they are sited only where there is a demonstrable risk and danger to road users.
The Government believes that devices which interfere with or detect the proper functioning of such cameras have only one purpose: to tell drivers when they can break speed limits and get away with it. This is unacceptable. It prevents the police from carrying out their duties, and is a danger to other law-abiding road users.
The Government will not be prohibiting those devices that rely on Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to warn drivers of published camera sites or posted speed limits, as these compliment the Government's policy to ensure that camera sites are visible and conspicuous to drivers, and so help deter excessive and inappropriate speeds on the roads."
