M25 speed camera warning a hoax say police

speed camera

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 11:03am 12th January 2019.

Surrey Police and Highways England say a warning about M25 speed cameras is a hoax.

A tweet went out this week saying new cameras on the M25 and M1 were going live at midnight on Tuesday (9 January) and will be set at 72mph.

It said anyone caught speeding over that limit would get a six point penalty from an auto ticket generating machine. 

The tweet also claimed anyone driving at over 90mph would receive an instant driving ban. 

The tweet went viral but has since been deleted. Some people also received the message on Whatsapp.  

It has been deemed a hoax by both Surrey Police and Highways England. 

Surrey Police told Eagle Radio:

"As far as Surrey is concerned, we are not adopting this practice."

While Highways England said: 

"We aren't aware of any changes to the M1 and M25."
