Yorkshire Car drivers BEWARE of M1 and M62 Speed Cameras

So, I am a resident of Kirklees and have been a user of the M62 motorway ever since it was built. In my opinion, it has been a great asset to the people of West Yorkshire and Lancashire. In fact, I do not know what we would have done. Including, how the roads would have coped without this motorway.

The big problem with the motorway, as we all know,. Of course, there are stretches between junction 25 (Brighouse turn off) and junction 27 (Gildersome turn off). Over the years, this stretch has had many accidents and hold-ups. So, making it one of the major black spots on the UK motorways. It came as great relief to the Yorkshire Car drivers, “including myself.”. When it was announced that this section of the M62 was to be upgraded and turned into a controlled system,. Similar to the one in Birmingham on the M 42 and part of the M 1 Motorway south of Sheffield.

50 MPH Road works

The work began about three years ago. Strangely, we were all subjected to a 50 mph speed limit. With many delays due to accidents and vehicles breaking down,. Eventually, the work progressed, and we started to see the rise of the gantries covered in motorway traffic cameras over the road. Which would be used to control the traffic in the various lanes. I could not wait, and gradually the work was completed. As a result, the speed signs direct us to what speed we should be doing.

In my opinion,

The new system is excellent, and it is nice to see some progress on the road system for Yorkshire car drivers in the North, where I believe that previous governments have heavily neglected us in all fields of investment. As I drive all around the country, I cannot believe the investment that has been poured into the South and places like Wales and Scotland. I truly think that we have been starved of money here in West Yorkshire at the hands of politicians to please other regions of the country.

However, we must not complain that the car driving population of Yorkshire has now got a new controlled section of the great M62, knowing that we will see fewer holdups and witness fewer delays.

Keep your car speed below 70 mph?

There is, however, one thing that we should all watch out for, “DON’T TAKE YOUR CAR ABOVE THE 70 MPH LIMIT.”. It is now known that when the traffic lights are off, the speed cameras are still working and have been “flashing” drivers who have been exceeding the speed limit. I am an older driver and rarely take my car over the limit, but there are thousands of Yorkshire car drivers who think that the limit is now 80 mph. So when you are driving your car on this section of the M62, beware, the speed cameras are there to get you.

Speed Camera Gantry signs now in operation ?

As an update, I have observed that the gantries are regularly switched onto the white cross over each lane. Signifying the no speed limit signs . The information box on top says “Speed Camera.”. In my opinion, this is a good development! I presume that this is a clear signal, and any driver exceeding 70 MPH will be flashed and prosecuted. Other devices will not be switched on as “speed Cameras” . So giving a definitive line not to cross ?

According to the Huddersfield Examiner, “West Yorkshire Police refused to comment further but the Highways Agency has now confirmed the new £150 m overhead gantry system between Huddersfield and Leeds CAN catch speeding Yorkshire Car drivers, even when it is not being used to slow the traffic”…More Reading…
