    No, it's not a speed camera.

    No. Legally all speed cameras have to be painted yellow.

    I stand corrected.

    Anyway, that speed camera doesn't look like any one I've seen so I doubt it's one.

    Yet, it still hasn't been completed, as is usual procedure for any Government initiative - all the HADECS3 cameras down the M1 were still grey, last time I checked!

    If you have been caught, accept the punishment and be glad you were not involved in a crash.

    At an indicated 66mph, the OP was very likely doing closer to 62mph in reality - I don't think that extra 2mph is going to make much difference on a relatively safe NSL single carriageway, especially at that point on the road.
