You ought to lose your license. From personal experience with a jackass who did the same thing to me, I can tell you that your insurance isn't going to compensate your victims the true value of their vehicles. They will be out several thousand dollars and loads of time dealing with the mess because of what you did.

chances are, if it was a speed camera, it already got ur speed when u saw it. also persons fault behind you not giving themself enough space to stop if needed. thats why radar detectors are the best (well in NY at least cuz they r legal)

I thought in the UK all the cameras had their locations posted? Also if you slowed to the speed limit and that caused the THREE cars behind you to crash into you they had to have been speeding as well and also following pretty closely. People need to learn to drive!!

149 and 151 - if the other drivers can provide witnesses (and as OP was on the motorway im sure there were plenty of witnesses) that OP stopped suddenly with no reason to then it is not the other driver's fault. And also if it wasn't a speed camera it could have been just a normal motorway camera to keep an eye on traffic and collisions etc. so there will be video evidence of OP's careless driving causing an accident. These days there isn't really a stretch of motorway unfilmed.

Probably because everyone else was. Speeding is not nearly as dangerous as heterogeneity of traffic density (which the OP quickly caused by braking hard). OP, you're stupid. YDI for being an idiot driver. Still, the people behind you shouldn't've been following so close either.

I think legally the car that hits the one in front is at fault. In this case the one's that crashed into the back of the OP. Personally I think in this case it's the OP's fault for braking hard without any real need. Though I suppose the other cars must have been speeding too to have been at a distance to be able to hit him. But still, it's called an 'emergency brake' for a reason, which is the only braking that requires 'hard braking'.

It's partially their fault for following so close, but in(presumably) clear weather on the highway, suddenly slamming on your brakes is bound to cause an accident.

YDI for speeding so fast and not paying attention to the road. Even going a ton you should have been able to spot and break safely in time to not cause a pileup. Oh, and get out of the fast lane. Thats for overtaking, not cruising jackass!
