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......

And while we're on the subject of toys for Old Bill, who the hell authorised this one for the Norfolk constabulary?!!

Or as I experianced in Malta police vehicle on patrol well marked but not equipped with beacons nor lightbars nor sirens so no chance of alerting apart from the horn, on other hand not chance of speeding on their narrow road and what a loads of old cars like Viva´s, Mini´s to just name a few what a choice of unrusted vehicles so next time I need to take Jón Baldur along so he can by himself some more vintage cars for his collection.
