New UK speed camera scare story hoax is spreading
Article by: Darren Griffin Date: 7 Nov 2012

pocketgpsworld.com
Pictures of a supposed new type of covert speed camera being tested in the UK is spreading through Facebook and email.

The picture of the 'camera' which is installed into the central barrier/armco is accompanied by a variety of information such as the claim that it is being trialled on the A52 in Nottingham and on the A1 in Lincolnshire.

The claims are entirely false. The images have been lifted from a Swiss Police PowerPoint presentation where this device is being trialled. The device is NOT a speed camera, it is a speed measurement instrument and it is deployed in conjunction with the standard speed camera on a pole.

It IS NOT a new form of covert speed camera and IT IS NOT being tested in the UK. Please spread the word to correct the misinformation being passed around.

Just in case any of you come across this ! Like this here :
