While ago, Coventry was amongst places that got rid of fixed cameras. I had a recent trip to GD today and I like to avoid the Folleshill to Binley ring ( AKA a racetrack). But I noticed that in one part of the city, there's announcements of the introduction of average speed cameras in january 2020 , whilst on Walsgrave road, average speed cameras are in action. When will thy ever learn ?

Well it's news
https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/ ... g-17479746

But is it "road safety " or a money making scheme. Again ,I fear we'll see the RTTM effect, as drivers spend more time concentrating on the speedo than the car in front .But fender benders don't (AFAIK) figure in police & therefore road safety STATS), so AGAIN, as we've said for so long and so loud, how can sending some a fine days after a nominal offence help driving standards. Only the bod on the spot ( trained Police professional driver) will do that
But if it gives the "impression" that it's doing that, then next a lot of other town will follow suit, and see profits for the "road safety empire" rise again
Folks- we now have a new campaign to address.
