Why would it be a mistake?

You obviously wen through two cameras over the limit.

IE: Camera one went flash and then whilst still driving too fast you managed to make it, in the space of maximum 119 seconds, down the road to camera two, which went flash as well.

1 'minute' apart!
Doesn't seem unlikely.

All in all that's pretty good going! I've had two on the same drive but 2 1 min apart is impressive!

I think between us we've probably paid for at least one of Dubai Police's super cars with all the fines over the years.

Surely as S indicated in post #2 almost 2 minutes possible, 09:48:00 to 09:49:59, still bloody impressive.

Dunno about UAE, but in Saudi they'll sometimes have a first camera that everyone slows down for, then as they accelerate again, they get caught by the second one. Quite crafty really and a good revenue raiser.

They also move the cameras around on the highway to different points to try and catch you out if you do the same journey regularly.

Or there's a combination of camera box, and then a camera hiding in the back of a van or fortuner.

They've just introduced all seeing cameras at the lights in Saudi that will do you for eating, mobile, seatbelt etc. Do they have them in UAE too?

Looking at the fine numbers, I make that 117 per minute...

The times are a minute apart, not a second.

cameras are 2km apart. Easy to cover 2km in under 2mins at say 145km - a normal speeding type speed.

Remind me again, you're supposed to be some type of bean counter, right? Numbers and all that?

How much money has your company lost in the last few years?
