Scotland puts speed camera movement on two wheels

Scotland's motorists had better keep their eyes peeled for a certain 'brightly marked' Honda 650 Deauville motorcycle. Those passing through Edinburgh at extralegal speeds had better beware, because local authorities have just outfitted a speed camera to the aforementioned motorbike, and it works in much the same way as the pole-mounted Gatsos and unmarked vans that litter Europe's roadsides.

The idea behind the motorcycle is that it can be quickly deployed to areas in which roadside conditions make it impractical and/or unsafe to use a van for revenue collection speed monitoring.
