Flashed by a speed camera

You know that "Oh bugger" moment when you see the flash of a speed camera?

Well, I was beetling along Putney High street at a rate of knots, near dusk, when there was a sudden flash of light in my face, and I could see that it had come from a speed camera just in front of me. "Oh bugger," I thought, automatically.

Then I thought - no, it's someone else. Can't be me. No way.

Because I'm on my bike. And if I do even 20 mph, that's on a steep downhill with a tail wind.

  1. I've always wanted to trigger a speed camera on my bike. Although it would be more fun if I could see the faces of the people who process it when all they could see in the image was the back of some guy on a bike.
