Are Insurance or Public Liability relevant?

Did you actually attend the fair? Anything to do with minimum height requirement to go on a ride? Did you have children with you?

Did you keep away from the fair? Would you have gotten in trouble in the area where the fair was? Did the fair hinder you from doing the illegal thing? If so, simply by being there? Did you want to do it? Is ride music relevant? Lights? Noise? If the fair had been closed, but the rides still there, would you have been kept out of trouble?

Were you actually speeding?
Were you prevented from speeding by a slow vehicle in front of you? Were you speeding but not caught because the camera didn't spot you behind a big vehicle?

Had the vehicle slowed down to watch the fair? To watch it set up? And you were stuck behind it? So you couldn't speed? And if you had, you'd have been caught by a traffic camera?

Was the vehicle transporting one of the rides or stalls for the fair? YES

*********** SPOILER ***********

There was a long line of traffic stuck behind a slow moving vehicle transporting a fairground ride. We passed a speed camera facing out of the back of a police van and we said that he wouldn't be catching many people that day as we all had to do way below the speed limit thanks to the fair
