Average speed scameras turned on today.

listening to the early evening news tonight, TV presenter Nick Owen asked the pro-speed Council guy "but since the old cameras were turned off the incidents went down down from 20 to 7" (That was around the figure IIRC).

The stupid political hidden-agenda reply we are all so used to from his ilk didn't answer the question of course! (Wanker).

So the reply went thus, from his bia$ed head....

'Im not going to answer the question you just asked me, (because I can't and it makes me look like an idiot), but some 500 people are getting killed on our roads and blah blah blah....'

When are people in some important or influential position going to answer a serious question and fact seriously? (Rhetorical, of course).

Same old same ole.... (Can't remember where I got tumbleweed icon from).

I've posted the news article on viewtopic.php?f=14&t=26830.

Pity the interviewer didn't have the guts to push for an answer to WHY the accident rate had decreased.
