ReadMoreMy local motorway, the M3, is currently undergoing conversion to a 'Smart Motorway' and I noticed that the HADECS camera installs were under way. Anonymous grey boxes installed at the side of a gantry and capable of monitoring all lanes. So, as it's yet another Bank Holiday weekend, a gentle reminder to prepare before you undertake any lengthy journey, plan your routes, set-up the satnav before you start and watch your speed. With all the smart motorway speed cameras now deployed, numerous average speed zones through road-works and the myriad of speed and red-light cameras out there, don't spoil your break with a speeding fine. Set off a little earlier, take your time obey the limits and have a great weekend.

Garmin unveils the VIRB 360 degree action camera

ReadMoreGarmin surprised everyone this week with the announcement of a new member of its action camera line-up.

The VIRB 360 is a rugged, waterproof, 360-degree action camera capable of 5.7k/30fps and an astounding 4k spherical stabilisation. The VIRB 360 specs beat it's nearest competitor, the long awaited and widely praised Nikon KeyMission 360, hands down.

It's an impressive first outing and will set the standard that others now have to beat but it's no bargain, a list price of $800USD is more than double that of the Nikon.

ReadMoreWork is beginning on the installation of average speed cameras on the A90 between Dundee and Stonehaven in Scotland.

A network of thirty point-to-point cameras will be positioned along the road, fifteen monitoring each direction.

The £2 million initiative follows on from the success of the average speed cameras on the A9 where approximately 60% fewer speeding drivers have been caught since they were first introduced.

A spokeswoman for The National Transport Agency said: "The average speed camera equipment will not be installed until later in the summer with the full camera system expected to go live in the autumn."
