News: Are UK Speed Cameras Illegal?

Speed Cameras, GPS, SatNavs A claim that more than 6,000 speed cameras are illegal is being tested in court this week.

Aitken Britherstone, a Cheshire businessman is appealing against his conviction for speeding. His counsel, Michael Shrimpton alleged that a 1991 amendment to the 1988 Road Traffic Offenders Act requiring Parliamentary Approval for speed camera devices had not been correctly observed.

The case is expected to end up in the House of Lords but it is reported there are as many as 80 similar cases awaiting a hearing.
