The first LA to withdraw funding for its fixed speed cameras, wishing to invest the over 300k operating cost in other measures, and citing the recent increase in local road deaths and injuries as indicating the cameras are not effective (think they're also miffed at the government for keeping all the dough too).

Is this just the start?

They'd be better off crushing the cars of any boy racers found going more than 20mph over the limit in a 40. Or if it's valuable car, selling it. And ban the boy racers for five years

There's one road near Cirencester with a 50mph limit. I don't feel safe at anything over 40 on it...which is unusual. Normally, one wonders why they have you going so slowly.
