Last summer I was towing a caravan (yes I know) along the A303 in wiltshire in a line of heavy traffic which was travelling at just under the road speed limit of 60 mph. I was keeping up with the traffic & was zapped as I passed a speed camera doing 57.6mph. (this was recorded on my gps track using Metroguide on my laptop.) Towing a c/van I was limited to 50mph, although the road was a 60 limit. I got a letter from Wilts. Const. cautioning me for exceeding the vehicle limit of 50 mph. I phoned them & they told me that new cams. could differentiate between classes of vehicle, & the cam. ascertained I was towing a trailer & bingo, I was caught.
This raises 2 points...1 I didn't realise cameras were this clever
& 2.. when next there are complaints of c/vans holding up traffic, it is because the speed limit is being enforced. (I thouht the police
's job was to ensure traffic flow, not hinder it.)
Anyway I have now downloaded your most excellent database, & perhaps I should put a sign at the rear of the c/van "Caution, I slow down for Speed Cameras"

Laughing Out Loud , you made my day. Maybe we can borrow your idea and produce a sticker with the "Powered by PocketGPS" logo on it and your slogan...
