Happy Xmas from the Speed Camera Partnerships

Well, not really a happy Xmas - or a happy new year - come to that after they have been told to reveal how much speed cameras earn.

This will underline what I have been sayig for years that speed cameras were never about safety. If that was the case they would be outside schools and hospitals and high streets. But no, the authorities had to raise cash for their silly schemes. (Speed is a factor in less than 5% of accidents - Govt figures).

Anyway enjoy this great story in today's Sun.... (With quotes from me!)

SPEED cameras were condemned as mere money makers last night after cops were ordered to reveal the huge sums raised.

England's busiest Gatso at the bottom of the M11 outside London raked in an estimated �2.3MILLION in five years as it flashed 38,243 drivers breaking the 50mph limit.
