    Just wondering about average speed cameras on the M1 just after junction 31. Approaching the the first average speed camera I was doing about 56/57mph and realised about 15 seconds after going through it that the limit was 50mph so quickly slowed down to the appropriate speed for the rest of the journey just wondering its been 6 days since it happend and I haven't gotten anything through the post.... will I be ok as I corrected my speed quite abit before the next camera?

    They are as the name suggests: AVERAGE speed cameras. They calculate your speed between two points, with a tolerance. Considering your speedo is going to be out by a few mph, and your average will have dropped significantly by the next camera, you're fine.

    There is still a small chance he may have been caught speeding. The police have 2 weeks to issue a Notice of Intended Prosecution.

    I drive 15mph over the speed limit at average speed zones and nothings ever happened.

    Speed camera gives some extra mph leeway + cars usually read a faster speed than they are actually going. This means that youre fine.
