    That was a bit stupid of you. Luckily though, speed cameras are rarely configured to enforce a 20 limit, 30 is the minimum they are capable of. So as long as you weren't going above 33-ish you're likely in the clear. Just try and be more observant next time, or consider getting a satnav that can warn you of speed limit changes.

    Many navigation apps will tell you the speed limit and can be configured to beep if you're above it. That might be a good backup for you to have, especially where pedestrians are likely. Be safe.
