Comforting to know that they witnessed motorists committing multiple offences, yet they were allowed to continue on their way.

It's a good job bank robbery or GBH is not treated in the same casual manner, and begs the question, what is it that makes them "Safety" cameras, when nobody is prevented from continuing on their way!

Quote:
Cumbria Safety Camera spokesman Kevin Tea said: "During tests we noted that there were multiple offences being committed by a handful of drivers who knew the cameras were not fully functional.

"Those individuals had better be warned that they now face losing their driving licences within a week if they continue with this behaviour."

This picture sums it up. 4 wheel drive, tailgating, while on a mobile, and passing a speed camera.

Surely a SAFETY camera would have spotted the phone, and issued a ticket, or got a BiB to come and STOP the offence before somebody died.

Actually it was a woman - and on my journey to work, women and van drivers are the biggest offenders!!
