SpeedI am gemused to read that, according to statistics published by Nanny's Department for Transport, many speed cameras have not cut accident rates, but may even have increased them.

Our local councils, proving once again that they are the enemies of the people, have been a tad reluctant to publish the full data on each speed camera in their area.


Cos they make a nice fat little profit out of fining those who "speed".

However, the government has told them to all publish the data, as motorists have a right to know whether local speed cameras are justified. Needless to say, the councils will ignore this request.

Here are a couple of examples:

A speed camera was erected (ooh there's that word again!) on the A329 in Little Milton in 1997 (despite there being no collisions or casualties for five years).

Over the next five years there were five collisions and ten casualties.

A camera was installed on the A1134 Newmarket Road in Cambridgeshire in 1997 following five minor casualties.

In 2010, when 1,027 drivers were caught breaking the 30mph speed limit, there were seven injuries, two of them serious.

As noted, councils are the enemies of the people!

    All of these so called fines are stealth taxes or, demanding money with menaces......Pay up and you'll pay eighty pounds, contest it and it may cost you two thousand pounds.....Magistrates tend to always believe the evidence of the police even above someone that has never been in trouble in their life.

    Yes, back in the 1960s the scourge of Liverpool (subsequently Merseyside) Police, famous Liverpool solicitor Rex Makin stated in court that "the word of a policeman carries more weight that that of ten honest men". As far as I know Mr Makin remains a pain in the police' collective arses.
