What is the purpose of Traffic Galaxy?
To provide innovative motoring information, free of charge.
Which geographical areas do you cover?
Currently, we have cameras across the whole of the United Kingdom, ie: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. However, we have exciting expansion plans to show cameras from further afield in the future.
How many cameras do you currently have on Traffic Galaxy?
The number of cameras can be viewed by looking at the scroller in the red bar at the top of each page on the website (to the right of the search bar), and is updated in real time. There are currently well in excess of 3,500 cameras to choose from.
How do I find cameras on a certain motorway?
As well as using the general search box (top left corner on all pages), we also provide an advanced search page, which provides several different methods of finding a specific camera, including specific links for major motorways.
How do I find cameras in a certain county?
You can select a UK region from the ‘Traffic Cameras’ option on the main menu. In addition, for each region in this menu list, there are sub-categories for each county within each region.
How often do camera images refresh?
This will vary, depending on the source for the camera image – anything from a few seconds to several minutes. Often, images will show a timestamp in the corner, to indicate when the last refresh took place.
Can I view camera images on my mobile phone or tablet?
Yes. Our website is optimised to work on mobile phones and tablets as well as PCs and laptops, so you should be able to use Traffic Galaxy wherever you are on any device.
I went to see a camera and it doesn’t work, what should I do?
If you click on the red ‘Report Issue’ button (located just to the right of the image on any camera page) then you will be able to notify us. We then check any issue notification alerts, to see if there are any resolutions.
Do you keep copies of old camera images?
Camera images are refreshed on an ongoing basis and we do not keep records or copies of any historical camera images.
What are the benefits of signing up for membership?
Membership is free and entitles you to: save your favourite traffic cameras, receive weekly Traffic Galaxy newsletters, view exclusive offers from our partners and to post in our member-only forums.
What other information can I find on the Traffic Galaxy website?
As well as cameras, you can find information about a variety of other points of interest, including over 80 major cities and towns in the UK as well as over 100 service stations. We are also planning to include information about a variety of other areas of interest soon, all of which can be viewed on our Points of Interest page.
