A speed camera on a busy road near Cardiff, UK has experienced a technical malfunction causing it to flash at drivers regardless of their speed. Every day thousands of commuters drive past the camera as they travel to and from the Welsh capital and several are worried they will be fined even though they were driving under the speed limit.

Road safety chiefs have confirmed that drivers who were flashed while going under the speed limit will not be fined as it’s a fault with the device. However, for anyone driving past it without the knowledge it is faulty, the thought of getting a speed ticket is still a worry.
