I was just looking through the Police equivilant of Arrse. I spotted a thread titled : What do you see Speed Camera's For?? It was very interesting to see the results so far of a poll that was running on the above debate : Just For Revenue : 67% Interest Of Public Safety: 28% No Opinion : 4% This was a very good point from a serving police officer on this subject: "Last week on nights i took 10 uninsured cars off the road, seized them, in six nights. Now thats were we should be concentrating on not hitting people for 33mph in a 30mph. Put 10mph speed limits near schools and de restrict the motorways. i'm sure most people would agree with that. most accidents are 40mph and under, low speed collisions."
