A few things to consider:- 1 We're always being told that speed cameras increase road safety. 2 Using a mobile phone whilst driving is bad for road safety. 3 The amount of money being spent on cameras (which, whilst penalising someone for being a few mph over the limit but in full control of the car, cannot catch drivers driving badly within the limit) means that real (possibly) human police oficers are being take off traffic patrols. OK, bearing all of the above in mind, I really wished I had a camera, or better yet a video camera with me today when I spotted a uniformed police officer, driving a speed camera van through cardiff whilst talking on a handheld mobile phone. What a fantastic display of police arrogance! I was really tempted to flag him down so I could get his name and service number and make an official complaint.
