Perhaps the most obvious explanation is that the back of the van is effectively a large flat reflective surface. If there was another van going in the other direction at about 29 mph, the radar signal could have bounced off the back of the first van, the second van and the first van again. 28 + 29 + 28 = 85.

We had a case like this some 8 years back with Andypf. The charge was 65mph and the photos (which we still have) showed 28. The explanation that Andy mentions was the only thing we could explain it with at the time and I did several experiments to establish it could happen for real. It is the only Gatsometer error that the police (esp RSS) refused to acknowledge could happen. Unfortunately the photo evidence proved otherwise.

The Police forces know very well it can happen, which is why most claim to do the secondary check.....

A Gatso is infallible if used correctly (that is by confirming the secondary check confirms the primary) otherwise by its very nature (Doppler radar) it can't be.
