"And did those feet in ancient times, tread upon England green and pleasant sward?"

I dunno, send out a S172 and see if he asks to see the pictures!

Ernest - from my experiences of years ago in the highlands( watching french drivers) i was of the opinion that all frogs were crazy :P

And we used to think that sheep were daft

If those sheep are Cumbrias amswer to the 'Crazy Frog', maybe the CSCP are Cumbrias answer to the 'Crazy Gang' (for those old enough to remember them!). Recent posts from the Speedfinder General in reply to Ernest's posts might indicate the truth of this.

To be fair Cooperman, if you corner a dog, it'll bite you to make it's escape, and Steve has taken some flak recently, what with several new camera sites going on hold, while the powers that be find out if cameras are working. :oops:

One article I read recently even went as far as to say that the Government were dissapointed to see how much money the camera partnerships were spending on collecting the revenue.
I suppose the suspicion is that when a manager, publicity officer and data manager receive a nice little earner, their data does always tend to say they are doing a good job. If they sit on statistics such as causes of accidents, which may or may not prove their case, i.e. may show that the figures they are claiming to be improving on were NOT the result of speeding, then you can see why some would think that, especially as fatalities have remained stubbornly high. :( Their defence is always the same:- "The accidents are reducing at the camera sites" which at Ings, means they all occur just a few hundred yards up the road, where the limit is not breached, but they still come off the rails. :oops:

Just LUCK stopped this minibus becoming a KSI, not a safety camera!!

This morning the BBC Radio Cumbria reporter and myself witnessed a coach speeding through Ings. It probably sped through Windermere, and Ambleside too, as there was nothing the "SAFETY" camera could do to stop it!
