Q642: Is there a requirement to have signs to warn motorists that there are safety cameras (both fixed and mobile)?

There is nothing in law that states safety cameras must be marked or signed in any way and lack of warning signage is not a defence against prosecution.

However, in Scotland all safety camera partnerships comply with the rules and guidelines of the Scottish Safety Camera Programme, which are based on the principle of a highly visible deterrent. This includes information signage on the approach to all safety camera sites and conspicuity of all camera installations and enforcement vehicles.
