Maybe the Police are saving your life, stopping you wrapping youself around a tree. Oh and by the way, if your arsehole driving killed any of my kin I won't be around to shake your hand and forgive you.

If you get burgled they dont even come out. But get ready if you park on a double yellow line, there will be a full blown investigation.
Glorified traffic wardens.

Same old again, there not coppers in mobile camera vans there civillians so there not stopping any coppers doing there job. Any thing that can save lives surely can't be a bad thing. @ Tosh well said.

@ Tony coppers can't do anyone for parking on double yellows, handed that over to council and traffic wardens years ago.

We was robbed via the internet we gave the police names and addresses url address the job lot and they was not bothered.. its all about getting the right key performance indicators and targets. Drivers are the easy target. We have a speed camara near our street on a hill going down.. your car naturally speeds up resulting in you having to watch your speedo rather than the road in fear of breaking the 30 mph speed limit. Surely this is dangerous as a net effect of speed camaras. And now im started.. the police offering a £1k reward to get people to report any drink driver its not acceptable. I donot condone speeding or drink driving but its getting ridiculas.. i agree with the comments they should be catching the real criminals..

Coppers CAN get you for parking on double yellow lines. I got fined February of this year when I parked on double yellows on high street in Wombwell when I went to buy a wheelchair for my daughter, who at the time struggled to walk. I appealed against it and under my circumstances it was thrown out of court

Here's a novel idea: Don't speed throughout villages & accident blackspots and you don't get fined! I've been driving for a while & never been caught speeding. If you have Cruise Control, use it, you can't go wrong!

My car was robbed last week 400 pounds down. Not worth claiming on insureance because I will be even more out of pocket. Police not interested but at least I know you are out trying to get more money into your coffers for the Christmas party. Priorities ! Reorganise them.

If your not speeding whats the problem

Some strange posts on this article, simple answer, IF Morons with attitude didn't use the roads like race tracks, there would be no need for the cameras

Why don't they get a propper job that you have to work hard for not stand or sit with a camera we are paying there wage to toss it off for hours. Real crime is too hard for them there brains are gone past sleep mode they need to get walking streets day and night catch some criminals in action

Piggy Bank - wrong wrong wrong. You're not paying their wages at all !!! The money raised from the fines pays for the civillian staff 'manning' the vans. If no-one was speeding then the orgainsation would have to look into how this service was funded. The chances are they couldn't fund it and so there would be no mobile enforcement with the vans.

They're like a bad smell..... Always there when they're not wanted! When you need help, they're nowhere to be seen! Civilians or not, they're still out to rob people! Villains in uniform!

Reply Posted by Damo on Monday December 9 2013 at 09:46
They park up at 12 on a night when there is not a sole on the road to catch people what's the point if there is none to hurt but yourself pointless

They arent just the average everyday police officer. And so they should be out catching people speeding! My grandad was killed last year by a man speeding, horrrifc injuries was dead at the scene went to court and he walked away a free man! #KillSpeedNotMan

Reply Posted by no 1 likes them but they work on Monday December 9 2013 at 10:50
I have been dun befor for speed by a mobile camera .. but I only have my self to blame as I broke the speed limit . No body made me speed . They work because now knowing they may be a camera round that corner I always make sure I stick to the limits .... and its simple double yellows mean no parking so people that park on them and then conplain when they get fined are just slack

I just don't get it, the police tell you where the traps are, but if you flash someone to tell them they're approaching one you get a fine.
