HiThank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer. I will try to help with this.is there any reason you think they shouldn't do this?
yes why should a camera flash into your face im sure this is not very safe for the driver
and should only flash from behind to get a true speed .

I'm afraid they are perfectly free to use front facing cameras. They have turned to them in some areas in order to identify the driver.One criticism of them is that they may be adverse to road safety but that is no defence. if you were speeding then you were speeding. Front facing speed cameras give a perfectly reliable reading. They work in the same way as GATSOs except from the front not the rear. I'm sorry this isn't the answer you wanted but it is the position that you face and I have a duty to inform you truthfully.Hope this helps. I would be grateful if you could please rate my answer and provide quick feedback. If necessary, I can then provide further advice and guidance as required and answer any specific questions you may have. Thank you
