Watch out for the policeman hiding in a front garden in Bayswater Road in Wallasey.
You wont see him coming off the flyover as he is behind the tree without a police car.
It's all about making money not stopping people from speeding

Recently they have also been on the Moreton flyover - between Tesco and Fender Valley since the speed limit changed.

Also, by Toyota at the bottom of the M53.

Bayswater Road has been a common place for them, and TBH I would be surprised if the owner of the house objected. That used to be national speed limit, to 40mph, to 30mph as you enter the residential area - the 30 limit is there for a reason and cars come belting down the duel carrageway without slowing sufficiently.

"...money making not stopping people speeding"

Im sure the comments would be different if a toddler was knocked down there by a speeding motorist (and yes there is a primary school a few hundred feet from where the police normally hide)

Plus I don't ever remember anyone getting knocked over there or even crashing (except the drunk driver last year)
Why don't they go to Liscard where someone is knocked over on a weekly basis

School holidays are also important as alot of schools run holiday clubs which mean childeren can be arriving / leaving at all times throughout the day.

Maybe its the police presence that slows people down so there hasnt been an incident. Awareness generated in threads like this also helps people know where to be more careful.

Its a 30mph limit - if noone is speeding, then theres nothing to worry about smile

I hate the whole hiding thing. There used to be one on Meols Drive, he was literally inside a bush. If you're doing 40mph you deserve it, but I've been zapped when I crept up to 36mph, it just happened, I never speed intentionally.

Maximum speed on a road sign literally means maximum speed. So a sign with 30 on it means don't do over 30 - that is the maximum speed.

For the 8000,000th time, the Police DO NOT make money from the fines!! The only money they get is to cover the costs of policing the speed "traps". The money goes to the Treasury.

As Stu said, would you be moaning about them targeting motorists if it was your child/girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband/mother/father/brother/sister etc that was hit by one of these speeding motorists or your car that was smacked into and written off? No, didn't think so.

The simple answer, again for the 8000,000th time, is not to speed. It's not rocket science ffs smack

That's what a lot of people say. It's also what a lot say when they knock someone over and seriously injure or kill them. Just because it's not intentional doesn't make it right.

*sat prepared for incoming*
