There are probably simpler ways of knowing where someone will be. I only 
know of two green camera locations in the Nottingham metro area for 
example (and they are normally the sort of thing I notice).

I've never actually seen one of the green cameras in London - maybe the 
Highways Agency thinks it's unproductive to try and improve flows there. 
Does anyone here have a map of where the cameras are?
