Faulty speed camera towards Heathrow M4 after junction 7

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 13:37, Sat 20 May 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4576875.

I was travelling along the M4 this morning just past Junction 7 towards Junction 6, at around 4:30am (20/05/23), there was motorway road works, so the motorway was down to one lane and a speed restriction of 40mph, the speed camera (fixed speed camera) seemed to flash every car that went under, I was in the correct lane and driving at 40mph.

  • Hi, I have experienced exactly the same issue on the 9th of March shortly after midnight. Received the letter from Thames Valley Police regarding this matter. Was the issue actually fixed since that time?
