    So I was driving around a 30mph area, at 30mph pretty much my needle was on it. And I went past a speed camera, but honestly, im scared that the needle was over 30 but its just because it was dark that it only looked on 30 even if it was above. The camera didn't flash but I've been told they don't have to flash anymore. I was trying to keep to the speed limit but I don't know if it was just too close for comfort or if I might've actually been speeding. Can someone advise?

    How can people advise. Imo just prepare for both. At the moment it didnt flash so just assume it wont amount to anything, but if you get a letter, then prob just a fine.

    the speedo is designed to over-read. That and speed cameras give a small degree of leniency. You're most likely fine.

    Do you know what type of camera it was. Gatso cameras will flash if activated, though there is also the Truvelo forward facing camera, which doesn’t have a visible flash.

    You won’t really know until after 14 days as to whether you have been caught.
