A driver who had traveled the same route for years was caught by speed cameras 26 times in the same month, three months apart.
On one occasion, Philip Dodd was flashed twice by Gateso Speed Camera in one day.
Near Manchester, the M62, with a length of 50 MPa, ran between 56mph and 63mph.
He asserted that his confession had been obtained through torture, and that his confession had been obtained through torture.

And it was only when he went with his partner that he registered a van in his name with DVLA – and 26 separate NIP tickets were dropped through his letter box.
Dodd, of Manchester’s Collist, has been dropped from his driving license with 78 points.
In Thameside Magistrates’ Court, Dodd – who was initially diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease – pleaded guilty to 26 speeding charges but insisted he was not a dangerous driver.
He was banned from driving for six months. It appears that the defect will result in the termination of his license at the end of his ineligibility.
Dodd was also fined a 20 520 – £ 20 for each speeding offense – and was ordered to pay 14 2,142 for expenses and overcharges.
The court heard how Dodd was caught between April and July 2020 while traveling westbound and eastbound near Junction 11 on the motorway.
He was caught four times in one week and flashed twice that day on another occasion.
He told the court: “I have no pre-conviction speeding and when I was caught I set my average speed out at 56.7676 miles per hour.
“I was starting around 8pm and ending at 6am and most of the time I didn’t see cars. I was often driving home only once at 6am.
“I was signed in October 2020 when I was initially diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
Although I am responding well to medical treatment, I am not returning to my previous job. In fact, I have tried to renew my gas safety license and become self-employed.
Dodd added: “The van wasn’t in my name and that’s why I was buying tickets and didn’t know I was getting them.
“Twelve weeks later, I received 26 letters by post. When I realized, I contacted Swansea DVLA and informed them of the situation. I am not a dangerous driver.
Dodd’s colleague – who declined to be named in court – told the hearing: “When we left together, that’s when he registered for the car.
“He then contacted DVLA and soon after, it was now registered with Philip that he had received all these fines. He was not aware of the reason for not registering the vehicle.
“It simply came to our notice then.
“He has been traveling the same route since 2015. It seems to have happened when we moved home and contacted DVLA.”
