AA warning over speed cameras

Scrapping speed cameras will risk lives, according to the AA. Cameras have already been switched off in Oxfordshire and Wiltshire and more areas are likely to follow due to government funding cuts. AA president Edmund King said: "The views of motorists are not being reflected and lives are at risk. People are more concerned about the battle to save lives...

Two things...

1. Sack this idiot!

 

2. NEVER use the AA. Use the RAC or another breakdown company that doesn't suck up the governments mis-guided backside.

 

LACK OF GOVERNMENT FUNDING??? My ass, they just weren't making money in such quantities any longer and people were starting to challenge them left right and centre as they know that speed cameras are for one thing and one thing only, MAKING MONEY.

 

I will happily pay anyone £1000 (tax free) if they can bring before me ONE PERSON who has had their life saved by a speed camera. Just ONE PERSON directly saved by a speed camera!

 

 

Now if the sheep want to come forward and start talking about 'road transport strategies' and how cameras were 'part' of the effort and not 'the' effort then PLEASE let me and the other millions of drivers know what the rest of the strategy was as all I have seen is dramatic underfunding, MASSIVE potholes, crazy lights/roundabouts and bloody speed bumps not to mention a plethora of stupid bloody signs everywhere....

I was out  pushing my 2 year old  son in the pram next to a busy road. when suddenly a car lost control and was hurtling towards us both. I stood glued to the spot with shock  when the car came to rest against a speed camera 6 feet in front  where   I was standing. I reckoned this speed camera not only saved my life but that of my sons also.. do you want my address to send the money or will my pay pal account suffice :-)

speed limiters

many years ago,early 70,s,on the A46 between Newark and Lincoln a new type of road surface was tried out,i was riding my BSA A10 650 at 60mph when i ran on to it,it caused horrible vibration and only when the bike dropped below 50 did it go away,i never travelled on it again as i was posted to Muharraq for 13 months and when i returned the surface was normal,i would love to know what it was all about.
