There is even a “30” sign woven in to remind people of the speed limit in the hamlet of Trewoon on the edge of St Austell, Cornouailles.

Community care worker Amber-rose Moone, 33, spotted the fake on the A3058, used by many drivers as a short cut.

Hundreds of locals have signed a petition calling for speed cameras, highlighting an “increasing number of incidents resulting from dangerous driving”.

COMME le mois d'octobre: “Examples include damage to property, death/injury to pets, and multiple near-miss incidents.

Average speed cameras are an ­efficient and cost-effective way of catching speeding drivers.”

Mais des médias sociaux users were quick to praise the ingenuity of the knitted camera.

L'un a dit: “Knitted speed cameras — at least they will be warm this winter.”

Un autre ajouté: “Doesn’t get much more British than knitting a speed camera.
