Ok, me again :)

Basically last night after work (about 9:45pm) I was driving down an A-road with a 40 limit at possibly 47/48 (definitely under 50, perhaps under the 46mph ACPO limit). On the left hand side of the road I noticed a car with hazard lights on which was "parked" in a parking bay and as I approached I could see that it was a police car. As I drove past, I noticed a strange looking thing sticking out from the top which could only have been a camera. It was a small thing which looked typically like a disco-light.

On this stretch of road there are no signs warning of possible speed/mobile cameras, and I didn't see a temporary sign (that is not to say, however, that there weren't any).

I guess my question is, am I likely to have been caught. Would this mobile trap (assuming it was one) have worked in the dark? If this wasn't a speed trap, what was it?

Please advise!
Thanks :)

ANPR camera. For sure. You're in the clear.

Thanks - good to hear! One thing that does keep nagging me, however, is that the list of mobile speed cameras for yesterday lists "A47, Leicester" as one of its locations. This "incident" happened on the A47 in Leicester. Still, s'pose it could have been a different part of the A47 with the trap :)

Keep up the good work with this site - you are helping lots of people in their fight against the thieves.
