Cars slowing for average cameras

Its my belief that this is the only type of camera which woorks. However being as it has number plate recognition why is it not being used to kill two birds with one stone. Lets put police cars at the end of the roadworks and catch the uninsured, untaxed drivers who are far more dangerous than the speeding motorist! :evil:

Perhaps they ought to put workers in the areas that these cameras are set up, that way drivers might just stick to the limit... :wink:
 
I'd rather see more of these if we have to have cameras. People may still race and then slow down for them, but at least you can horn them into speeding up. I agree with the tax and insurance too. I am always angered when i hear about the ridiculous fines that uninsured drivers get (if they're even caught!). Mostly, it's less than my insurance cost in my first year of driving!

They should have brought in these type of cameras years ago!
As they say, the "flash" money boxes only capture the speeding ones passing that spot and we all know motorist slow down as they pass and then speed up again!
Have similar set up on "toll" roads in Europe (not for speedind as such, but could be used) where you pick up a ticket at the "start" point of a "toll" road and pay when you exit. As these tickets are timed then you can work out how quickly you made that journey from A to B.
On the uninsured issue...why not display your insurance in the windshield as we do Tax??Have to in places like Italy...just a thought.

I believe in a speed limit to protect the workforce. However I also believe that while there is no workforce present then in this day and age the limit should be turned off. After all if the system is clever enough to read number plates and work out average speeds then surely someone must be clever enough to turn it off when it is mot required
 
Just read the bbc report. These type of cameras have been in operation in the South East for many years, so how come the West country is only installing them now?

I know the pace of life is a little slower down there, but come on .... :???:
