Pain in the rear
The authorities should recognise the danger caused by being tailgated by HGVs (often continental lorries) when motorists are trying to keep to the restricted speed limits. Do cameras pick up these aggressive menaces? If so, are they prosecuted?

Duncan Stewart (“Against the clock”, Letters, April 17) should beware: average-speed cameras do have the facility to record your maximum speed as you pass — as a colleague found out to his cost!
