Have no problem with drivers getting done for speeding. It's essentially a tax on silly behavior.

No, that's why we walked raftl We had slates and chalk too, got the slipper if we misbehaved AND we had milk at breaktime every day laugh We could also spell properly and had a good command of the English language - something sadly lacking with todays children snob

And on that note I'm off to watch the Armed Forces Who Wants To Be A Millionaire episode.

COME ON DUTCH!!! thumbsup

They also hide at the entrance to the road leading to the Gunsite from the New Brighton link road, to catch people coming off the flyover where the limit goes from 40 to 30 mph.
Teatime is when they appear - there must be a cafe handy for them in New Brighton.

What annoys me about these speed checks is that the officers using the equipment are using it incorrectly.

They are staring thru the camera, watching your speed, and then pull you in if you are going too fast.

According to their own guidelines, they should have reasonable suspicion with the naked eye that you are speeding, and then they can use the equipment to verify their suspicion and gather evidence......

That still happens at your doesnt it J wink

Ive said it before, and Ill say it again, but that location is a money spinner! All accidents in the past happen on the corner, so a speed trap after isnt going to prevent an accident. Its also a very short distance to a roundabout where you must slow / stop anyway.

They would be better off setting up in a more builtup area where pedestrians and childern are, not at the end of a motorway, after a problem bend, and before a roundabout.

I'm sorry but speed restrictions are there for a reason, whether you think that is right or wrong, it's the law, if you speed you might get caught, it's the risk.....oh yeah and the risk also of killing someone because you are driving dangerously let's not forget that.
