now where's that SDK file gone?.
If you mean POICapture, it doesn't work correctly with V7 software. Sad

Blame TT for not making the SDK available.

1) Thank you to you and all the other verifiers, your efforts are greatly appreciated.

2) How about adding a category to the monthly download called "needs verifying", the thousands of people currently using the database could then download and verfiy as they drive around, maybe make it only that only people who have already supplied accurate camera details can submit verifications, this would make it easier to stop people claiming to verify random camera locations just for a free subscription.

I can only echo what some people have put on here. And well done you lot. I wonder how many 60 fines you have saved people, or accidents you have prevented.

Shame you cant get a cut... of the money, I mean not the accidents.

I do have a question though:

Near us is a site that is listed as a mobile speed trap. When I noticed it the first time, I pulled over to ask mr pleeseman why his speed trap did not conform to the regulations regarding signage. i.e. no speedcamera warning signs.

His reply was: Because it is not a speed trap. It is a avnr camera van and we catching those with no tax, insurance or license.

So how the heck do you poor guys have the time and effort to be able to tell the two apart, or do you just not bother? Or does it even matter?

I would be interested to hear what others say on this.

we have to reply on good informative comments on the submissions and also further submissions with good local knowledge like this. if you could submit this via the online form we can get the site removed if it is only used for anpr.

If it is a handheld speed camera operated by a Policeman, they don't need the signs to be present.

No. Apart from the fact that today I went to Warwick, then Newport (Gwent), I try to specialise in small and light. Laughing

Like you Dennis i too spend all my life on the road all over the country and overseas
So it's a big mistake not to report cameras - travelling all over PLUS abroad, you get a far better chance than many members to see new unreported cameras. I know a member who got free membership from foreign cameras. What's more, your report may not be the first, but it would add to the probabilities for the camera to become accepted and if I didn't have a free membership I'd still report everything because the database helps me more than most with all the mileage I do. We know it's not easy to be the first submitter, but SOMEBODY has to be it, it might just as well be you.

I'm still struggling to come to terms with what I saw today - a Mobile van in Keynsham!!! Down by the rugby ground. His window wasn't open, so I'm having difficulty deciding whether it was alive or just parked near the Greasy Spoon. To report or not to report, that is the question. If only I had a spare skull to consult!

Are you arguing with yourself because there's nobody else to disagree with or just indecisive today?? Wink Laughing

Report it - you might just be the first and, if not, start a thread asking why you weren't the first to report it Wink

An anti tank mine placed under the front wheel of the van should sort out your dilemma. Twisted Evil

On a recent trip down from Calais to Caen, Vere and Mont St Michel although i had the database activated i never got one warning, Surely that journey of over 300 miles must have had some?. Did anyone hear this week about the French blowing up speed cameras the police are treating them as terrorists - you have to laugh.
