FAQ: Common myth about speed traps

One of the common myths about speed traps is that the police officers have to wear fluorescent clothing and be on show.

The facts are that police officers do not have to wear specific clothing when engaged in roads policing or provide any other warning of their presence.

Assuming they caution you correctly at the road side you just have to take the points and fine.
