hi there looking for help if possible.

I was caught doing 44 mph in a 30 mph zone by police in a marked car ,

However they were parked in a shop car park.

My question is do they need permission to be there ?
If so who is authorised to give that permission , shop owner? , shop manager? ,
shop assistant?
Do they need written permission or is verbal permission ok?

jobo
there is no defence to you speeding in them not supposed to be where they are, so unless there is something about their position that makes the reading unsound, forget it
blueboab
So are the police allowed to pull up anywhere and conduct there business,

could they in theory come into my garden and set up a speed trap without
my permission ?
jobo
yes in theory, just as they could hide in your garden if someone was breaking in to next doors house

if you went out and said oyh push off, then they would have to go

Thanks for your help

I thought it was a long shot.
