How far can a police speed van reach?
Mobile speed camera FAQs
On a straight section of road the typical range for a mobile speed camera is one mile. Can you get caught behind another car? As long as the speed camera operator can see and target your vehicle they will be able to get a reading of your speed.
What do police camera vans check?
Mobile speed vans do take a photo of speeding vehicles as evidence of the speeding. They will attempt to take a photo of every vehicle that has been caught speeding, but the photo may be of different angles of the vehicle and it can sometimes be blurry.
Do speed cameras work through glass?
While it’s often the case that a closed window means the camera isn’t operational, you would be mistaken to think this is a hard and fast rule. Law enforcement are not above tricking speeding drivers and will often point their laser guns through a closed window.
