Drapes, I need your help. JB archive is now saturated with speed camera threads which all consist of various people repeating a limited number of arguments.
How about a game where someone starts with Rant A (it's all about revenue) and someone counters with Rant G (when you've scraped up as many dead bodies as me, my son.....) only for Bloggs to nip in with Rant D (wallies in the middle lane) while a jumped up magistrate chips in Rant H (the law's the law, dontcha know?) and so on.
It could make Mornington Crescent look very sad and slow couldn't it?
That's ok, but let's face it. Speed cameras are there ONLY TO PRODUCE REVENUE. If this wasn't the case, then you wouldn't see them placed on wide open straight roads where the speed limit just happens to has been recently reduced
In fact I think they cause as many problems as they solve, if in fact they solve any.
Ah, the simple straightforward, revenue play - good start Onan. I'll throw in Needlebaum's circumbendibus and offer the fact that they need to generate revenue to pay for developing all the film. K*dak have a little known patent on the key technology that gives them a monopoly.
As far as I'm concerned, you can speed all you like but the police should be trying to educate all those people travelling right on the limit in the middle and outside lanes. They're usually wearing hats too ... the drivers, that is, not the lanes ... anyway, it leaves you having to scrabble for a good position from which to overtake.
Agree Jerricho but its not something Rossco would do now is it. Reminds me of my journey to work the other day. The car alongside came too close and hit mine. It was only a slight kiss , the swine never stopped, so I had to give chase
I feel that there is not enough vandalism of these d@mn speed cameras going on. Those snakes in the grass politicians would get the idea and give up if more of us were to get up our ladders witha can of spray paint and sort it all out for ourselves.
