Danger, you are entering a speed camera area!

It's OK, I can't see a camera so it probably wasn't "at the camera site" - it shouldn't reflect badly on their figures!

A collection of environmental conditions:
entering / exiting village,
double Hill,
various road markings,
camera signs

Google : https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?saddr=A4 ... ra=ls&z=16

and the accident location here:
https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?saddr=A4 ... 5,,0,-1.92

So its coming into a 'cushion' 40 from 50 that then leads to a 30.
Down hill into the 40.
We can only ponder if it is the speed limit change that has acted as a factor in this incident. :(
Could be some or several other factors too of course.
