OMG, WTH is wrong with you? Yes, camera's catch after 260.

But have heart (from Wiki, about Myth Busters):

Neither a Dodge Neon nor a Lamborghini Murciélago were able to travel fast enough (at 138 miles per hour (222 km/h)) to outrun the camera.

* However, the British motoring show Top Gear was able to beat the cameras by speed with a TVR Tuscan S[2] at 170 miles per hour (270 km/h), albeit with a UK-spec Gatso speed camera. This myth was revisited in season 5, wherein it was explained that while speed cameras in the UK require two consecutive photographs for a conviction, US speed cameras require only one. As part of the revisit, the MythBusters were able to beat the camera using a jet-powered car traveling at 245 miles per hour (394 km/h).

What about this 1M $ speeding ticket ( 290 KM/H ) he got caught :mrgreen:

but mentioning the insane speeds, i had the honor to sit in a 2009 LP540-4 going over 300 KM/H AbuDhabi ~ Dubai Road ,the car was rented from a rent car office in dubai during last EID holiday

After you corss 300 KM/H u feel every thing is moving as if Fast Forward >> ur eyes open widely and starts to flood / sneez :grin:

I didn't mean 'you' personally. I meant anyone who talks about going that fast on the street especially on a bike should be punished.

I asked him which road because RRs don't have plates in the front. And most roads in Dubai which can be used for touching those speeds have cameras that snap from the front.
