M25 cameras catch no one in a year

A network of 36 speed cameras on the M25 has caught no one in a year because none has been switched on. Technical and legal difficulties have prevented the Highways Agency from switching on the variable speed limit cameras. It came to light when AOL tried to find out which camera had raised the most in fines. The Highways Agency...

Speed cameras on the M25? More like portrait cameras with the speed the traffic doesn't move at!!!!!!

Apparently, the " technical setback " is a row between the Highways Agency and the pleece over who gets to pay for the operation and upkeep etc. Long may it continue. Anyone else up for a lap of the M25ring? Seriously though, how can a 4 lane motorwat get so badly snarled up? Because of ignorant drivers who won't use it correctly and insist in hogging the middle and outside lanes. Grumble over......

Were these cameras installed by the same morons who installed the cameras on the Cat and Fiddle where it was found you can bypass the road on a faster road with no cameras? Speed cameras all over the country have been in place for years and still people speed past them and get caught, therefore, as a speeding deterent, they don't work so why don't they just scrap the lot. Oh, hang on, I forgot about all the easy money they make which contributes nothing to safety!

If you're..............

.....................fed up of control freak MPs don't moan here.

Apart from venting your frustrations you're wasting your time.

Get up off your knees and vote the traitorous bastards out.

If you haven't got the balls to vote BNP at the very least give UKIP a try.

If you can't be bothered doing that then our country is finished.

Stop griping about unfair biking legislation and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!

If the signs say 50mph and your doing 50mph when they change them to 40mph and you're still doing 50mph without a chance to slow down, you'll get knicked I guess?

Everyone will be be hitting the brakes and causing pile ups around the motorway. That's assuming you can actually get to the speed limit of course. Most sections are nose to tail with people pootling along at 10 mph because of congestion, accidents, rubber neckers and roadworks.

M25 cameras on or off.

You can't tell if they're on or off anyway so you could say they're slowing the flow, albeit momentarily, just by being there. They're cheaper when they're off too. I'm not a fan, I'm just saying there is little to crow about here.

So UKIP = BNP-lite? It's a slippery slope. Don't do it.
