Can a mobile speed camera see this far?

Hi, please see the pictures at the link below

I definitely wasn't going over 46mph, but I'm curious - can they see through trees?

The fastest I was going was just before the parking bay on the left. At the lamppost just before the tree.

I'm just wondering - are they even allowed to park hidden between trees / could scan that far away between all of those trees? Or would they be waiting there just to scan people's speed passing that parking bay on the left?

Thank you smile.gif

Presumably this seemingly random question is related to one or more of your three previous threads?

Not related, I'm just curious. My previous thread I was worried over nothing! - Sorry did I post this in the wrong section? It should be in - Technical Discussion of Enforcement Devices

No, it should be in the flame pit. Which it now is.

Excellent news biggrin.gif , so anyway back to my random question.

As lasers can see up to 1 mile away, what would the distance be of a speed camera located here - surely the trees would easily obscure the camera vans view?

I haven't seen this camera parked here before.

If the operator can see you, then they can ping you, whether they would get it reliably enough to think it’s worth it is a different question.

It’s not clear from the random photos but it looks to me possible.

The limits essentially are

There being a direct line of sight between the laser and your car.
The software algorithm in the gun being intelligent enough to pick out a plausible speed from all the return speeds it gets.
The car not being further away than the software limit, typically 1km.

From time to time you get operators on here claiming they can pick out cars easily from "hidden" locations. However, the fact that no actual videos exist imply that they are lying (for a change), and anyway why bother when you could park somewhere where, say, vehicles are coming round a corner instead.

If you look at an enforcement video they tend to focus around the same sort of distance in one session, say 200m. If a van appears to be hidden it is probably focussed on a location nearer or further away, where it isn't hidden.

Ah right, thank you. Makes sense, It's line of direction was past the parking bay on the left. But I guess people don't expect them to be parked on the grass so they could catch those out not paying attention on the right.

It's like these operators earn commission.

Not really - more like shooting fish in a barrel.
