    Average speed camera's don't measure your speed.

    I know that sounds daft.

    Two camera's work in partnership to read your numberplate. The distance between the cameras is known, so calculating the time between plate reads the authorities can work out your average speed over the set distance. A single average speed camera does not know your speed like a Gatso camera does.

    You can't 'set off' a single average speed camera.

    Or a convenient protester with a sign on a pole that's coincidentally the same height as the camera lens who's there just as you go past the cameras.

    That is discrimination against sheep. Half of Wales will be offended.

    I wonder if they'll also build some car parks just before the cameras, so all these drivers can park up for the necessary time to allow the average speed to drop back to something legal?

    Is it your velocity?

    Nope. Each camera simply records your reg number and the time you were recorded passing that location.

    Luckily, the camera suppliers usually know the distance between pairs of cameras

    No, your average speed. You're thinking of a velocity camera.

    Some of which take two pictures, so almost providing some sort of Schroedinger speed choice

    Yebutt. Average speed cameras don't use the Doppler effect, innit.

    Apparently that's important.
