Long time passing. Where ?
And WHY.
Have we meekly succumbed to the idea of a network where safety is down to a lot of speed cameras?

WHY????????

:gatso2: I'd say it was all down to the social media and the advent of dashcams as the reasons why posters have gone elsewhere.

Meanwhile I've seen recently that the new idea ( certainly in the Midlands, Coventry especially ) is average speed cameras.

Latest idea by West mids police is that we( motorist) should install dash cams ( front & rear) and send in photos of offenders to police. I've actually had an on line e-mail from a Sgt in Warks Police to suggest that.
This was in responce to an article on speed traps in certain areas, where I asked if Tailgaiting in 20 zones would be enforced.
Problem the Police do not see as a problem is that if an owner of an older vehicle gets shunted, then repair is above repair value of vehicle.
