Warwick Bridge Speed Cameras was created by bluestblue
The speed cameras in Warwick Bridge have been dismantled.

However, they have been replaced by Average Speed cameras. As of now, there is no signs saying that they are there, nor are there signs saying "cameras not in use"

Take heed if you drive that way.

As a regular user of this stretch I’ve noticed them appear. Have seen suggestions the new Cameras are covered by the original Speed Camera signs at the bridge crossing the river heading East and the entrance to Corby Hill heading West...

Average speed cameras are the most ridiculous things to have in a built up area , in theory you could be doing 60 mph down the hill over the crossing at the coop down towards the school ,then slow right down before the second set of lights at the bridge.

The Council have`nt got a clue.

The amount of traffic that turns on/off the road between the lights at the top junction and the bridge over the Eden it’s amazing anyone gets over 20mph!

why would anyone do that?

The idea is you stay at or under it for the duration and I’d guess they work or they wouldn’t be in use. The ones by Bassenthwaite lake certainly work.

Maybe a bad example but a good point in the effectiveness of these cameras.
Kirkby Thore being a good example there are several places you can join traffic beyond the entry point of speed check so in effect your impossible to time.
A driver heading West can enter the speed check area stop for fuel at BP then put his toe down without detection.

Cramlington for me.Third time in about 8 years I guess.I might do a Brexit poll when in there as you meet all manner of society-speed cameras have no selection boundaries.

There will be one who is in total denial usually at the front , a sprinkling of the less educated and me and others who simply cant wait for home time.4 hours is a long time in this course but I did learn a lot lost time but clearly not enough to prohibit another visit

If you keep within the speed, you wouldn’t have to worry about the cameras or the following course.

I’ve seen the really awful effects of a speeding driver, the limits are annoying the consequences far worse!

3 times is awful! Dubious driving ability ;)

At least we’re not Stockport

They used to recruit candidates for the Cramlington centre with a mobile van on the dual carriageway near the school. Not a warning sign or 30 limit reminder in sight. I got done there on a test drive when the guy with me from the local Skoda dealer told me the limit was 40. B*****d!

You're supposed to know by the spacing of street lights if there's no signs to let you know what the limit is....but you'd only be told that if you did your test after about 2000.
I got nailed by a mobile camera last week, just returned the forms and praying for a speed awareness course.
First time in probably 15years I wasn't concentrating, I was the only car between the two towns I was going between as well!! I liked it better when your car rattled and vibrated at 70mph..I blame these modern cars -too damn smooth!

Wasn't there a high profile football manager caught doing excess speed there about 3 or 4 years ago? Can't remember who it was but he employed Nick Freeman (Mr Loophole) who got him off for the following reason. The court summons stated that he was photographed by a speed camera at Warwick Bridge, but there are and never were any speed cameras at Warwick Bridge, they're located at Corby Hill so the case was dismissed.

That’s the least you deserve for test driving a Skoda :-)

Melbourne, even worse it was a Skoda Yeti - the girliest car I've ever driven. My manual Superb on the other hand is a proper car.

Yes I know about spacing of streetlights in 30 limit areas but in most normal places in the UK they would have light-up reminders to warn drivers. The whole point of these mobile speed traps in Cramlington and Dudley is to fill up the spaces on the speed awareness courses.

There's a specific junction of the Nottingham Ring Road that has a 40mph limit where there has never been any warning you're entering a 30mph area
(This is how I found out about the street light thing)
You have about 60ft to realise the streetlight spacing means 30mph because the very next thing you're met with is a mobile camera van....
My argument was that if I had that little time to notice street light spacing and reduce my speed without any formal warning of a speed limit change then I couldn't have been giving a safe amount of attention to the road....

DB you probably have a 4x4 Yeti with proper tyres not a school run and shopping runabout like the one I was driving.

Noticed ‘Camera Not In Use’ signs were out yesterday now all cameras are up. Also more signage in general.

Looked like a total of five cameras from Warwick-on-Eden to just past the Corby Hill crossroads...

Why not.... After all, why dual the stretch between Hexham and Carlisle when you can waste a fair wedge putting up average speed cameras and building an unnecessary roundabout at Hexham instead.
Highways Agency are incredible.

I got caught on the m60 near stockport by those average speed cameras. Done my course at Carrington. It was an evening one and the [censored] kept it going the full 4 hours on purpose. 9.30pm I got out! Still, more funds for the coppers Christmas piss up.
