We all know that most speed cameras come with warning signs to let drivers know they have to slow down - but new cameras in New South Wales, Australia come with no such warnings.

They are designed to catch motorists who use their mobile phone whilst driving, but they will also catch speeders.

News: GPS Block 3 - The Future Of Navigation

pocketgpsworld.com
The US Global Positioning System (GPS) has been in operation since 1993 and has had regular technology updates in the intervening years as older models are retired ands new ones take their place.

Currently GPS Block II satellites form the backbone of the constellation but GPS Block III will take things to a new level of accuracy, albeit at an eye watering cost of $529m to build each one.

Three times more accurate, 25% longer on duty lifespan, interoperability with EU's Galileo, Japan's QZSS and China's Beidou and an encrypted and jam resistant M-Code signal available to the US military.

There are currently two GPS III satellites on orbit and undergoing testing and validation, another due for launch in Jan 2020 and the remaining seven are expected to be operational by 2023.

Driver behaviour has improved dramatically since average speed cameras were introduced on a "notorious Edinburgh blackspot".

The Old Dalkeith Road has seen a substantial reduction in speeding since the installation of the point-to-point devices. Their presence has seen many more drivers sticking to the 30mph limit.

Since their activation, only two vehicles per day were recorded speeding from October 2017 to June 2019 - previously three in every five vehicles were speeding along that particular stretch.

Average speed cameras, which cover a stretch of the A10 from Cheshunt to Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, were first installed in July 2106 on a trial basis to help stop illegal street racing.

It's now reported, perhaps unsurprisingly, that the racing has stopped and the devices were such a success that they have now been upgraded and made permanent.

It is not the most unusual of headlines: 'Lorry Gets Stuck in Narrow Lane' - lorries get stuck in narrow lanes all the times - it happened with drivers following their paper atlas and now it's happening with them following their sat-nav instructions.

What is still up for debate though is the signage. Huge amounts of money are being wasted rescuing hapless drivers on well-known narrow stretches when surely all that is need is better signage.
