Whilst I have no problem with speed enforcement outside schools etc I hate idea of these cameras being used as income generators. The Wiltshire police recently bought an unmarked motorbike with speed cameras on board at a reported cost in excess of £40k. Apparently it paid for itself in a couple of weeks!
The cameras get torched regularly here in Wiltshire & outside Bath & most people I know support this action. Maybe that says a lot about the people I hang around with
The message sems to be getting through to the powers that be though, as the wonderfully named Wiltshire Road Safety Partnership now publish details of fixed & mobile cameras on their website.
Come the glorious day......
