Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
So over half of drivers admit speeding? Why, then, is there such a backlash against the spread of speed cameras? If there was any other kind of crime wave on this scale, we’d be pleading for the police to get a grip and tackle it. As I’ve said before, if people would like fewer speed cameras around, then simply stop speeding so that they stop being economically viable.
