A set of new speed cameras which can detect motorists committing a number of different offences have landed on UK roads.
The ‘yellow vulture’ cameras can detect when you’re on your mobile phone among other offences.
They have been described as more discreet than the normal yellow box speed cameras but can also catch you committing the offences such as smoking, eating and drinking.
Drivers can now land £200 and six penalty points for using their phone behind the wheel of their car without even realising their been caught.
Eating, smoking and drinking while driving isn’t illegal but if it can be deemed to be distracting to you then you could be fined for careless or distracted driving.
These cameras are part of the new Safety Camera Partnership and have appeared on the roads in Plymouth and Devon.
They are positioned to face oncoming traffic and are paired with an LED box system 20 yards before them.
Multiple cameras are set up at separate locations, around 200m apart, along the road which will help determine an average speed between them to determine whether or not the car exceeded the limit.
