Another comment on speed cameras

Just been spending a sleep disturbed night (Noisy bloody kids! Fortunately I’m on my days off starting tomorrow) reading the road traffic accident statistics from the department of transport; when the politicians and pressure groups scream that speed cameras are ‘necessary’ and must stay, please read the documentation for yourself. Yes, the good news is that road traffic accident casualties are down.

The cause (From my reading at least) appears to be quite self evident. Drink driving is way down and no longer as socially acceptable as it once was. Repeated Police purges on unsafe vehicles seem to be having a positive effect on the figures too. Better safety technology in vehicles. Better tyres and brakes. Better and more stringent MOT testing. By the look of the figures, Speed cameras have only had a marginal effect.

Don’t take my word for it; read them for yourselves.

Exasperated expatriate expostulations all the way from British Columbia, Canada. As if anyone really cared. Oh, I also watch Icelandic Volcanoes and seismic activity. Don't ask me why.
