Speed Camera at Fault or Human Error?
Martin Smith, motoring solicitor, represented the driver of a lorry who faced a very serious allegation of speeding. A “Safer Roads” Enforcement Officer had looked at photographic evidence and had come to the conclusion that the lorry had been driven at a speed of 67 mph in a 40 mph limit on a motorway. The driver denied the allegation and his employer’s telematic evidence showed that at the time of the alleged offence, he was actually going at less than 40 mph! The case was withdrawn by the prosecution before the day of trial.
