Good morning everyone!
I was damn angry a few weeks back when I was flashed by a speed camera while entering the Soreze dangerous curve at night. Normally, you would say that it is normal if you are driving above the speed limit of 40km/hr.
But that was not the case. Upon entering the zone, I dropped my speed to 30km/hr. Yeah. Even if you stop the car, apply the brakes and then, just release the brakes, the car will automatically and instantaneously increase to a speed above the limit!

Anyway, so, I was at 30km/hr and I spotted the police van, the camera and the guys standing behind a laptop. The only thing lacking there was a signboard with the following words : “HEY! WE ARE HERE! WAITING FOR YOU TO DRIVE FASTER!”
A few meters from the camera set up, the flash ‘flashed’. lol. I was the only one in the area. No cars besides or behind mine.
I had just been flashed! WTF? I checked my speedometer. 30km/hr!

I drove home angry and I even thought to write a complaint in the police station but then, I told myself that it won’t be of any use. In that case, I had better evil plans for the police force *demon*. 1 week elapsed. Nothing reached my letter box. 2 weeks, still nothing.
Conclusion : The police officers were probably carrying out tests to see if the license plate was properly visible with the right amount of light from the flash, the aperture and shutter speed were correct for the night photography.
Any similar experiences or have you endlessly waited for a letter after you were speedy on our roads???
