Yeah, that one at manly is spit road. Listen to this piece of doggy defication - its not a blackspot, its a blacklength !!!! Mosman council who services the road suggested to the RTA to have the speed camera at the top of the hill, where the accidents actually happened, itstead of at the bottom where the camera resides. RTA agreed to put one at the top - problem is they left the other 2 active. From memory one camera shoots down the slope, two up, which needless to say is blantent revenue raising - I would have thought the danger is speeding down the road, not driving up it !!!!!
Yeah, I feel sorry for u vics, It almost scares me into not driving down ur way - so u prolly have found a good way to keep us northherners out. Get your state's civil libertarians to have a whinge - it worked for us.
The clasic I have heard about is Hawaii, where the govenor introducted mobile speed cameras owned and operated by contractors. The residents went balisitc - egged the camera cars, took to the camera cars with bats etc, the govenors support plummeted etc. U know what happened ? he withdrew them altogether.
If only we as a society could do this, instead of copping it sweet with all these revenue raisers. If the opposition made it a policy to drop the cameras, Id vote for them, probably with the majority of the state. Just look at the f**king ridiculous data at the RTA site - people were 10 kmh over the speed limit so that justified a camera ? FFS - Id understand a camera in a place with 20 or more over the limit, but 10 ? U utter Knobs.
