On my way to take grandson to nuresry ,I came across this gem . The sign says "ACCIDENT -CAN YOU HELP" . BUT - It's directly under a "SAFETY" CAMERA ".Now,I was always led to believe that the camera helped stop accidents at these sites .
GS /any other CSA agency flks like to come in and say what has gone wrong

The sgn says "ACCIDENT CAN YOU HELP?"

It's Ok, it's not "at the camera site" - it's a few yards further on...

...their claims should be safe! :roll:

Accident can you help?....yes I suggest you remove the camera and make the area safer.

"Yes officer, I was there at the exact moment of the accident. However, I didn't see anything because I was watching the speedo at the time"
