    The anti-speeding message is getting festive with this poster, which will be going up in pubs and clubs during December. "It's a seasonal reminder that speed limits are there for safety," said a spokeswoman for the National Safety Camera Partnership.






    Notice the Gatso speed camera on top of the xmass tree

    No comments... well, OK, one comment... they are trying to make us believe current speed camera's are our friends and useful? its become nothing more than demagogic excuse for turning the police force into tax collectors for the goverment, morons!




    Here are some related interesting stories:


    Police chief car caught at 97mph
    Derbyshire Chief Constable David Coleman has been criticised after his car was reportedly caught speeding at nearly 100mph on the M1.

    The police chief in charge of traffic in Greater Manchester has been caught speeding along a motorway at 104mph.

    The chief constable of North Wales Police Richard Brunstrom has admitted an "obsession" with tackling speeding motorists
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/3978957.stm


    Police chief Richard Brunstrom has rubbished reports he was obsessed with catching speeding motorists at the expense of fighting crime. Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom said his force's worst burglary detection rates yet, with only 6% of burglaries solved in the month of April, were no more than a "blip" in the figures

    Speed cameras 'increase danger'. A road safety organisation is claiming that speed cameras are making roads in Derbyshire more dangerous. Safe Speed' says the county has seen an increase in fatalities at the same time as being one of the top four in the country to hand out speeding fines.

    End of rant. Sorry.

    Re: UK Speed camera asso. xmass slogan

    Yup, we're getting those too. It's the same here, the government is using traffic safety as an excuse for raising fines and filling its budget. Just to illustrate, Slovenia is a country of two million ihabitants and in last year alone they bagged over 60 million Euros in fines alone. And the catch? The new and "improved" traffic law, valid 1.1.2005 will increase the traffic penalties TWO fold. You get caught doing 50 km/h over the speed limit inside the city limits (even if it's an open road), your license goes bye-bye. I guess Europe really IS turning into a police state...

    Just one question, Carlos. Why did you put a comma between the words "government" and "morons"?

    Speed doesn't kill. Bad drivers kill.

    Last year, a swiss traffic-cop got caught in his Porsche at 198 km/h on a normal road (no highway). ahem!...

    I bet he now says, when he's ticketing other drivers: "Don't do as I do, do as I say."
