Hi,

They only photograph cars as they travel away from the camera, looking at the rear numberplate.

A person of criminal mindset might attempt to alter the numberplate in some subtle way to prevent the number being recognised...............I would imagine...

The markings on the road are required by the courts for evidence, so even if the camera 'catches' you going 120mph in the other direction they cannot proceed.

Be careful for the cameras which can be swivelled through 180 degrees -there is one on the A20 near me which they turn around at random.

In Germany the picture was from the front angle. They had your smiling face in the photo, along with your plate number.

Yes, they have them here on some motorways-but they are not called 'Gatso' and they operate in a different way.
