But its not about the money....

A UK cop has snapped 329 speeding drivers in 5 hours! Story is here, along with some very interesting stats:

http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2004030681,00.html

It seems its not just us Aussies who are being fed a load of crap about the "evils" of speed...

Red ones go faster.....

Re: But its not about the money....

Actually, I havent lost a point on my Vic licence. But they are still scum bag revenue raisers. In the real world, speeding accounts for so few accidents it is a joke. If it wasnt about money, then double the demerit points and have no dollar fines for 10kms or less over the speed limit.

But I rant (and I know your being sarcastic....at least I hope you are)

20,000 pounds in 5 hours !?!

I'll bet he was popular with the head of station . . .

And I also bet that if word of where he lives get out to the public . . . .

What fantasy world is he in, saving lives by taking photos . . . what BS. He's only reinforcing the publics lack of faith in speed camera's, and decreasing the public respect for what a speeding fine actually means . . . .

Re: But its not about the money....

"But new figures yesterday showed road deaths are RISING in many parts of Britain, despite the explosion in speed traps."

Hmm.. why would they stop the cameras if they were found ineffective? After all the sound of KAH CHING KAH CHING sounds very inviting to those receiving the cash.
