Nope, thats why they were painted in the first place wasn't it...Can anyone put forward and possible?justifiable reason as to why hidden Speed Scameras are better than visible ones with regard to safety?!
Like everthing in life some stuff works some stuff doesnt on the traffic calming measures i like the width restrictors where appropriate or the single lane chicanes they work around where I live but it is congested in greater london, as you say councils dont give it enough attention normally unless it will make revune or benefit them within the short term.I don't see how so called traffic calming measures make any difference. As far as I can see all they do is damage cars and slow down ambulances. For example some genius has just decided to install traffic calming measures in a village near me. This is on a narrow road which is the main route for many people getting to work. It's also used by tractors etc and all its going to cause is chaos. But then I think that's what councils and the government want.
Time i got my broke road angel fixed and updated!!Nope, thats why they were painted in the first place wasn't it...Can anyone put forward and possible justifiable reason as to why hidden Speed Scameras are better than visible ones with regard to safety?!
Swines. Maybe I will go buy a Road Angel after all, took mine back as I always spotted them before it did....if they are hidden, I won't
Exactly right, from the article:-That Old Bill fella from Wales (Brums something) is arguing that no cameras can be put up outside of Schools etc if there has nt been a major accident. No one in their right mind would mind and many would welcome Speed Cameras set up around Schools, Hospitals etc. The sole benefit of this though would have to be to stop drivers speeding in these areas not to raise even more funds for the government. How is hiding cameras gonna stop Joe Fast in his 1.0 corsa booting it down these roads. Visable, well positioned cameras will stop people from speeding. Whats the point getting a fine and 3 points on your license from a hidden speed camera after running down a school kid. Bit bloody late then aint it. [:|]
That is the truest thing about the ridiculousness of speed cameras I think i've ever read.Or how about when the camera goes up 'well we did put one up, but we camouflaged it so the driver didn't see it and carried on at an excessive speed and mowed down your son. Sorry about that, but we did get ?60 out of the driver, so, you know, every cloud...'
So what to do that's within the law? If everyone on the board was encouraged to meet somewhere in the UK and do a drive slow in convoy, and made clear our reasons for doing so surley that would generate interest in the media. When I say everyone I mean active users, otherwise it would be what 15k cars?!?Let's do something about it then. Serious. Let's not sit back and take this.
