Do they have a visible flash at night.
Dh was driving home from our anniversary date and we went past a camera he realised he was doing 83 in a 80 zone.
We have never got a camera ticket before so I have no idea if he actually got caught iykim. We both are super careful with our speed.

Speed camera question

Not sure but I think it would be some serious bad luck to get a ticket for doing only 3km over the speed limit.

One time my brother got a ticket at night for speeding. Looked like lightening!

Yes they flash. You most likely wouldn't be fined for 83, they give you a couple of km/hr leway. Also, if you have a good driving record you can usually request the fine be exchanged for a warning instead. You need to write a letter admiting your mistake and highlight your good driving record etc.

I was always under the impression that you have 5ks grace to factor in for dodgy speedos or something. I think youll be fine

Fixed speed cameras have the brightest flash, you absolutely cannot miss it (not from personal experience!).

Yeah you wouldn't miss the flash. I've seen them go off before (not for me but cars near me!) and even in the daytime the flash is quite obvious. And they do factor in an error margin, so you wouldn't get a ticket for 3ks over. Also, if you have a car that was made after 2005 the speedo would actually be set to between 3-10% out so that you don't speed. For example in my car if the speedo says I'm doing 80, I'm actually doing about 72-73!
So I'd say you're in the clear
