Riding to the gym this morning in the dark at about 05:30. As I round a gentle bend and start heading up an incline when there appears a red beam of light that flicks across my visor twice, maybe three times - less than a seconds worth of flitting light but enough to vaguely dazzle me for a moment. I note it came from the footpath area and scan for the danger, there it is, a mobile speed trap van parked on a grass verge. I’m conscious of being ticketed and had just checked my speedo read out of 64kph, which given the tolerances should be about right for the 60kph zone I was in. But, what was this light - a targeting tool, or the flash of the camera? I believe these units are manned and require a person to paint the "innocent until proven guilty" speeder with a laser. If so, I think it’s a pretty dubious practice to choose the visor as a target area… But, safety first, after all ever K over is a KILLER.
