Have a look at this amazing admission from "Destroyer" aka Steve Callaghan on the PH website.

http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topi ... 4&f=10&h=0

Just confirms what we always believed.

Thanks Stevey baby! ;)

Reproduced below in case he decides to retract the statement...

How fortunate the Police Officers were not wasting their time pointing a laser up the road and were, as you have so eloquently said, "catching criminals".

Where has there been a quote saying that cameras would perform as you say by catching this sort of criminal. They are not meant to are they? Have I been misled?

A perfect exaample of horses for courses, Police making arrests and cameras catching exactly who thay have been designed to catch.

Talking of catching, you seem to be catching on!

It constantly astonishes me that Steve puts this argument across as a defence.

Only in the bizarre world of Steve Callaghan is a device failing to perform it's actual function a positive thing (the function being improving road safety - oh, hang on.... it's the MONEY he deals in, not the lifesaving.....)

I'm sure Steve could give you 1.6 million reasons why his cameras are successful - and 1 million of them DIDNT get to go to the government! :wink:

Maybe they have severed the last link between road safety and speed enforcement. That way they don't have to keep answering questions about their failure on the road safety front.
