Speed Cameras Record Every Car
In this article about British speed cameras, and a trick to avoid them that does not work, is this sentence:
As vehicles pass between the entry and exit camera points their number plates are digitally recorded, whether speeding or not.
Without knowing more, I can guarantee that those records are kept forever.
EDITED TO ADD (7/25): As pointed out by Pete Darby in comments: Passenger moons speeding camera and gets his picture published even though the car was not speeding.
Police may take action against the man for public order offences and not wearing a seat belt.
Officers have the registration of the car, which was not breaking the speed limit, and intend to contact its owner.
It is understood the driver will not face prosecution as no driving offence was being committed.
How did they even know to look at the picture in the first place?
