Here’s the latest on where drivers are being clocked breaking the speed limit.
There are a number of different speed cameras at work monitoring traffic on Scotland’s roads, including mobile speed, average speed, variable speed and traffic light cameras.

There are actually a number of different types of fixed speed cameras, the first of which was the Digital Gatso speed camera, which initially used film to capture those breaking the law but which now use digital photos.
