Out of the ten cameras we have highlighted for you, one is just a money making machine. This particular camera has caught 51,049 drivers in the act of over-speeding between the periods of 2015, 2016 and 2017. Each time the camera takes a shot of speed offender, it sends a fine of £100 (₦47,600). The 51,049 speeders, over the period of three years have paid a minimum of £5.1m fine. That is ₦1.4billion.
