There are few things worse when driving than missing a speed camera and hoping you weren’t going too fast when you drove past it.
Thankfully, Safety Cameras Scotland - part of Police Scotland - has a breakdown of where all the speed cameras are in the city.
But it’s not just speed cameras you need to watch out for.
What are the types of safety cameras in Glasgow?
There are different types of cameras that you need to watch out for when driving.
Fixed speed cameras - These record two images 0.5 seconds apart. The cameras have a radar which determines the speed at which a vehicle was moving, and use markings on the road as verification.
Mobiel speed cameras - Marked vans use laser technology and image recording to measure the speed of vehicles both approaching and travelling away from the van.
Average speed cameras - These use number plate recognition to monitor the average speed on a section of road. These work between multiple locations and multiple lanes. They can also be used temporarily, such as on the M8 while roadworks are carried out.
Red light speed cameras - A sensor under the road surface detects when a vehicle has passed through a red light, prompting the camera to take two pictures of the offending vehicle. Some have a dual function which allow them to also monitor speeds.
