why bother telling people were these cameras are. if the cretins want to speed lets catch them and take the licence off them for 12mth happy days.

As a preventative measure obviously. They're trying to slow people down in the first place rather than punish them afterwards for speeding - despite popular opinion.

to john, they shouldn't need a preventative measure. if it says 50 you don't drive at 70 that's the law. people have died because these cretins think the law doesn't apply to them. we don't warn drivers to put mobile phones away because there might be a camera ahead so what makes speeding morons so different. if caught take away their licence and make them take their test again its the only language they understand.

Which is better - preventing someone getting injured in the first placed, or punishing someone for excess speed afterwards? Surely the first option.

John, im sorry but if you had lost a loved one because of speeding scum then trust me you wouldn't have such a do gooder attitude. And you would probably want them hung, drawn, and quartered.

You seem to be making my point for me - can't understand where you're coming from. Surely if at all possible you want to prevent the offence and risk of injury beforehand rather than punishing the offence after. I've been injured by a speeding driver myself so can do without the lecture cheers - would have much preferred not to have got rear ended in the first place than him getting six points after.

I will tell you exactly were I am coming from. when a speeding driver approaches a camera he slows down this MAY prevent an accident the problem is most drivers I have seen then speed up straight away probably keep speeding until the next camera which could be 5 or 10 miles down the road. if he had been caught at the first camera and punished he may not have killed somebody further down the road

A couple of days ago the camera van was parked on Pontefract Road. Nicely placed just after the bus stop coming in towards Barnsley. So you're driving out of the 40 limit and into a 30. I thought it a bit crafty though using stopping buses as cover, as most drivers ignore the highway code where buses are concerned, so they are easy pickings. There was one driver I had no sympathy for though. A bus was at the bus stop and shielding the camera van the indicator came on and the cars ignoring the highway code speeded up past the bus, then there was this complete idiot that decided to overtake the stationary bus and the moving cars must have been doing at least 50. I really do hope this driver has been caught , complete and utter dangerous driving. The only problem with this camera van really was after the school run had begun the traffic was crawling past it so definitely no fines to be had there, but the operator stayed there anyway just adding to the congestion.
