Candid cameras

If you think that slowing down at a speed camera is enough to avoid a fine, you’ll need to be more careful. Did you know that those yellow boxes can capture you doing more than speeding? They can catch you for not wearing a seatbelt, using a hand-held mobile phone behind the wheel and having illegal number plates. New laws introduced in March 2017 issue six penalty points and a £200 fine if you’re caught using a mobile. You can also be taken to court, banned from driving and get a maximum fine of £1,000 (£2,500 if you’re driving a lorry or bus). If you’ve passed your test in the last two years you’ll lose your licence.
