Thank You Mr Gatso (Not!)

June 25, 2013 by in category News, Speeding with 0 and 0

Not a lot of people know that the Gatso speed detection device was actually invented by a Dutch racing and rally driver seeking to improve his speed and driving skill. Maurice, a.k.a. Maus, Gatsonides born in 1911 invented the pesky speed camera and set up “Gatsometer BV” in 1958.

He was also famed for inventing the supercar recently sold at auction by Christies.

So, it was actually a piston head who is responsible for the nation’s overzealous speed detection culture! Talk about unintended consequences!

Whilst we do not condone speeding and recognize the harm a speeding motorist can potentially cause, we are frequently successful in minimizing the damage that flows from a lengthy driving ban or penalty points. So if you have been clocked by too many Gatsos, or simply want advice about responding to a Notice of Intended Prosecution, we are happy to provide free initial advice on your options.

Available night and day on 0161 274 5580, please get in touch with our experts in motoring law team to discuss your speeding law question or any other motoring issue.
