Stupid place to have a speed cam, there are loads of streets where kids are nearly getting knocked down every day, how many pedestrians cross there - almost none.

On the other hand if they have anpr, then that is a common route to insurance/tax dodgers.

That's more like it. Nothing sly about it, if you do the crime, you pay the fine.

If you think its alright to be a criminal as long as you don't get caught then I can understand your viewpoint. Next you will be saying they can't arrest robbers unless they voluntarily walk into the police station.

Robbery isn't a victimless crime. Getting nabbed in a speed trap for doing 35 in a 30 invariably is (victimless, I mean). Apples and oranges, DD...

Speeding is not a victimless crime, people don't just lose a few of their worldly goods but they lose lives, friends and family.

When it is your child that is killed by speeding perhaps you may see it differently, how many deaths will it take to convince you otherwise?

Imagine being told that if the car had been doing 5mph less, then there was a reasonable chance your child might have survived or not been hit at all.

tired The same old crap yet again tired A crime is a crime. You'd soon be up in arms if one of your kids/family/friends were hit and seriously injured or killed by a car doing 35mph in a 30mph limit area and be demanding that the Police did something about it.

They enforce the law, they don't make it. If you don't want the ticket, don't speed.

Simples!

Read it again? I said "Getting nabbed in a speed trap" is a victimless "crime". I didn't say killing someone (child or not), by driving recklessly, was.

Why do you confuse getting caught in a covert speed trap with killing people? You seriously mean to say that if the speed trap wasn't there, somepone would have been killed? Give me a break. The real reason that such well HIDDEN Speed traps are used is, quite simply, to make MONEY. They do not reduce road deaths, they don't even reduce speeds. (If they did, then they would never catch anyone, would they?)

You can never say that it wouldn't happen. That's the very nature of an accident! Speeding is a crime, pure and simple; ergo, speeders are criminals. Nothing will change that.

The whole "money making" thing is an issue to take up with the Government. They have similar things in the States, take it up with them too if you feel so strongly - although they'd be more likely to shoot first and answer your question later raftl
