    They usually always have a fluorescent yellow coating on the back panel (opposite to the side with the lens). Obviously, it's at the discretion of the installing/maintaining force, but in my experience, it's rather standard.
    Yes. They’re all a rather boring battleship grey.

    Well yes, as are speed cameras for the most part; only certain panels have the fluorescent coating.

    Hi OP

    I asked a similar question about a week ago. I was in Blackpool to see illuminations and driving out to find a place to eat I was stopped at red lights.
    Suddenly I was very sure I saw lights turn green so I drove on through them. Only when unlooked back and could see the lights still on red and the cars still at a stop.

    I consider it likely I may have gone through a red light. On top of the lights was a small black camera looking box with a red dot light on it.


    I have since found out that the black box above the lights are not cameras, they are sensors to control the traffic flow. Unless there was a yellow box or something and you got flashed you should be fine.


    Good luck, I hope it turns out well for us both
    My friend did a simular thing he said he stoped at the red light on blackpool road then he went thinking it had turned green but it had not it was still red in ribbleton
