Bad news for the Hampshire Scamera Partnership, who face a drop in their greedy haul after it was revealed that their scamera at the bottom of the M275 (motorway spur into Portsmouth) doesn't cover the fast lane! Huh? Apparently the scamera can only cover the three inside lanes (though its yellow box is cunningly camouflaged against the yellow of the petrol station behind it, and placed just before the 40 limit becomes 50), and they are precluded from putting a second scamera on the central reservation because of - useful for once - health and safety. So at a point where drivers are both frantically changing lanes and braking to avoid the scamera, let's push everyone into the outside lane. Perhaps someone can explain to me exactly how this will be safer?
