Gatso is possibly the most popular (over 4,000 locations across the UK) and best known speed camera unit in the UK. Hailing from the Netherlands, Gatso was founded in 1953 by Maurice Gastonides, a former Monte Carlo Rally winner.
Gatso accounts for over 90% of all fixed speed detection cameras using radar technology (radar type 24). Gatso can be found in many guises, including fixed speed cameras, in-car mobile units (camera dollies) on tripods, and even from moving vehicles. They're rear-facing cameras so as not to dazzle oncoming motorists with the flash, Gatso cameras aren't always visible until the very last second when you could have been spotted a few hundred yards away.
Gatso cameras can determine what type of vehicle they should be tracking and what speed they should be traveling at, meaning trucks have a reduced speed limit on major roads and Gatso takes this into account.
