Speed Cameras

Speed cameras are a good idea unless you wish to break the law by exceeding the speed limit while remaining undetected. I fail to see the problem that seems to pervade a British mentality. I want to know who started the idea of it simply being a money raising exercise. I strongly suspect that this was the motoring industry as they see speed cameras and catching ‘speeders’ as affecting sales of evermore powerful cars. If you can’t go fast then cars won’t sell. Simple. To have motoring organisations like the AA coming out against these cameras is very telling. There is an influential lobby somewhere.

A lemming attitude of following an argument that is nonsensical is quite pathetic. The latest was a councillor who seriously considers it dangerous to look down at the speedometer as this means taking your eyes off the road. I‘ve never before heard of anything so stupid as that. You may as well never check mirrors as this means doing the same thing. Incredible.

A contradiction to a later post where speed cameras are criticised as tax gathering devices.

Oh, rejoice in the duality of man!
