Bad luck. If it is not painted yellow you might be able to challenge it. It would be interesting to know what criteria they use to position the things.

I assume this is in addition to the traffic light camera that catches out westbound traffic at that junction?

It's the same camera which I thought was just a red light camera also the thing about being painted yellow is now just a myth according to. Gov site I was reading earlier and decided to accept the penalty.
It's very recent as Google maps 2019 shows no lines in the road but the pcn shows 3 white lines running across the carriage.

There's been one up that road for ages - do you mean they've added another one?

No Tommy, it's the same camera but now it does both red light and 30mph speed trap. So as. You leave the a27 at Falmer and go over the the fly over there's a 30mph painted on the road then 100yrds down there's a camera sign tucked into the bush on the bus lane side so you cannot see it and then at the junction of coldean Lane theres 3 lines painted on the junction

It's not a trap; it's a recording device activated by people breaking the law.

Also if the sign is hidden in the hedge then you could say its a trap

It's interesting. All the other candidates are really local people; they either live in the ward they're standing in or they're... more
