Speed cameras

Types of speed camera

In Lincolnshire, we use four types of speed camera. These are:

  • GATSO cameras
  • Truvelo cameras
  • Vector SR cameras
  • Specs3 average speed cameras

We also use one type of mobile speed camera, the Kustom Laser Witness. This is placed in or around a speed camera van.

Find out more information about Lincolnshire’s speed cameras, including locations, and calibration certificates on the Lincolnshire Police website.

Speeding penalties

We operate a zero-tolerance approach to speeding in Lincolnshire.

If you receive a notice, you must respond.  You have a right to challenge the evidence or to put issues of mitigation to magistrates.

By law, you must identify the driver. Failure to do so will result in court action being taken against you (or company secretary).

We do not supply photographs unless there is a genuine problem with identifying the driver.

We will supply you with a photograph for any court trial.

If you are caught by a speed camera

Police may offer you the opportunity to attend a national speed awareness course.

If you complete the course, you will not get points on your licence, a fine or a court hearing. You will have to pay for the course.

If you are not offered a course, you may receive a ‘conditional offer’. If you accept points on your licence and pay a fine, you will avoid a court hearing.
