The cameras, which combine number plate reading technology with a global positioning satellite receiver, are similar to those used in roadworks.
The AA said it believed the new system could cover a network of streets as opposed to a straight line, and was probably geared up to zones in residential areas.
The Home Office is testing the cameras at two sites, one in Southwark, London, and the other A374 between Antony and Torpoint in Cornwall.
The `SpeedSpike system, which calculates average speed between any two points in the network, has been developed by PIPS Technology Ltd, an American-owned company with a base in Hampshire.

How many motorists are from space?
By the way, when did you get that watch, I never saw you wear it before ;)
Just wait until the tech comes to America... and Speeding becomes a felony.
I can do that too!
BTW, you need to put your pants back on. Seriously.
And for the record..... quit laughing, it's cold here.
Based on what is being worked on in the lab right now, I have little doubt that in 30-50 years, scanners will be set up that can read, accurately, your thoughts. And who knows how many of those scanners will even be needed.
I do not envy those born into this technology. I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that we have created a monster. The whole world is on the precipice of a culture that will make today's Singapore look like anarchy.
And I suspect it will come upon us like an unexpected storm.
Just another piece of evidence that the UK who is leading the West into the next dark age.
I believe most major developed countries are entering similar early stages of a big brother surveillance society. Once physical currencies are eliminated, every last detail of our lives will be monitored, and potentially manipulated.
I’m guessing that human nature doesn’t allow for government without abuse and tyranny eventually developing, especially as technology permits a few keystrokes to destroy a citizens life.
So they are convicting people for speeding based on the time they take to get from point A to B? A wormhole appeared in front of me and I accidentally entered it, your honor.
