does anyone know if a camera has to have a full frontal view of your car when registering a speed or can they get the front corner as coming around a bend? i.e. does the whole car have to be in the shot?

Haven't got a NIP but may be expecting one soon....

Thanks

I could see potential issues with just a 'front corner' - generally they would snap with the car fully in view. (But this does not mean you won't get a NIP)

This was a van not a hand-held device?

OK, it was a van, I saw the nearside window (closed) and braked then saw the offside open window, it was on the other side of the road. I hope it didn't get me! But will be a nerve wracking 14 days!

Also, do the operators take 2nd or 3Rd readings? Or is it first reading only and if over nip?

Thanks for the help

Multiple readings could be taken. Nothing you can do now unless the letter lands on your mat.

thanks, yep. I think my speedo was on or just under 50mph in a 40, (speedo is 4 mph out between 40-50) so hopefully under 46....... if he got me I think it would be between a hedge and a lamp post, went back later in the day and parked where he was, but who knows, I hope that I noticed it in time and time it took from seeing the closed nearside window to seeing the open one and managed to scrub off some speed.
