|Safe Speed Launches free
News: For Immediate Release
The Safe Speed campaign for genuine road
safety has recently added a forum system to its web site allowing visitors
to exchange ideas and information. There's no better place for visitors
to discuss facts and opinions about driving and road safety matters. There
is no charge for access to this unique
Paul Smith, founder of the Safe Speed Campaign said: "Genuine road safety demands a completely open and honest approach. For too long the government and camera partnerships have tried to bury facts, distort truths and control public information. We're working very hard indeed to set the record straight. The new public forums move us one step closer to those goals."
The forum system also encourages visitors to comment on web site content. Safe Speed information comes with a guarantee of accuracy and honesty - if anything can be shown to be inaccurate we promise to put it right as soon as possible. However, after almost three years, there have been no significant honesty or accuracy challenges despite more than 25,000 visitors each month.
Safe Speed has investigated and revealed many anomalies in the Government's modern road safety strategy, all of which are reported in detail on the web site.
The forum system is available at:

About Safe Speed:
Since setting up Safe Speed in 2001, Paul
Smith, 48, an advanced motorist and road safety enthusiast, and a professional
engineer of 25 years UK experience, has carried out in excess of 4,500
hours of research into the overall effects of speed camera policy on UK
road safety. We believe that this is more work in more detail than anything
carried out by any other organisation. Paul's surprising conclusion is
that overall speed cameras make our roads more dangerous. Paul has identified
and reported a number of major flaws and false assumptions in the claims
made for speed cameras, and the whole "speed kills"
The inescapable conclusion is that we should urgently return to the excellent road safety policies that gave us in the UK the safest roads in the World in the first place.
Safe Speed does not campaign against speed
limits or appropriate enforcement of motoring laws, but argues vigorously
that automated speed enforcement is neither safe nor appropriate.
