"Speed traps"Article in Policy magazine

G'day all, I spotted a magazine called Policy in the magazine stand at my local newsagents, it has a cover story on speed traps by Dr.Alan Buckingham comprising of 10 pages of text, graphs etc based on research in the UK and Australia.It is worth a read to see how State governments(Especially labor ones) and their agencies who are taxpayer funded ply the crap we have been hearing.
Cheers Bill.

Re: "Speed traps"Article in Policy magazine

The conclusion is;

"The net result of years of speed cameras in
Britain and Australia is that road speeds have not
slowed signifi cantly, the downward trend in serious
accidents and fatalities has been almost totally lost,
hundreds of thousands of the safest drivers are
convicted each year and the goodwill between law
abiding citizens and the police is evaporating. In
the midst of all this, British and Australian State
governments are selling their speed campaigns as a
great success. Donít believe it."

Re: "Speed traps"Article in Policy magazine

That is a fantastic article. Good to see a serious article that is not from a motoring magazine too, so the "oh its just written by those hoons" argument doesn't hold water.

Re: "Speed traps"Article in Policy magazine

Hello all, sorry if my post was short on details,blame sleep depravation and heavy prexmas workload.I posted the reference because of the reasons Funkypig outlined,this is a major article in an influential magazine that is not a motor enthusiast publication,it is not just passionate driving enthusiasts complaining.Thanks to Supermono for posting a link to the article.Now for some sleep!
Cheers
Bill.
