Motorists on the M6 motorway should be aware that speed cameras are in operation at junction 17 in Sandbach, Cheshire.
A temporary speed limit has been imposed due to roadworks. There has to be an issue with either the visibility of the cameras or the speed limit signs showing the commencement of the 50mph zone.
On March 9th in the course of one morning the motorway police tweeted that 1600 speeding offences had been recorded by the speed cameras.
That is a lot of people who more than likely were not aware of the temporary speed limit. Enquiries are under way with the Highways Agency to establish the speed limit signage.

The number of police prosecutions for driving while impaired through drugs is about to massively increase.
The new drug driving rules run alongside the existing law which makes it a criminal offence to drive whilst impaired through any drug. It does not have to be an illegal drug but can even include over the counter strong pain killers , sleeping tablets and cold remedies.
The new drug driving laws specically set out drugs such as codeine and diazepam which are to be targeted by the police. It is not a motoring offence to drive whilst these drugs are in your system. `The offence is committed if your ability to drive is caused by the influence of the drug'.
The real impact of the new rules is that the police will now be able to perform a roadside test using a drugalyser which will instantly tell the police officer what drugs are in the drivers system.
The penalties for drug driving are a minimum one year driving ban together with a fine , community order or even prison sentences in the most serious cases.
