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.
