As you approach these cameras there's a GREAT BIG SIGN with a camera on it with the wording "SPEED CAMERA AHEAD" ... if your eyesight's so bad you can't even see the sign you shouldn't be driving in the first place. And then you've got the camera itself ... a great big thing on a pole at the side of the road ... and if you're on a flat road you can see it hundreds of yards away.

Now, had they been sticking to the limit in the first place, there would be no need to "jam on the brakes", ergo, there would be no accidents from people back ending each other due to trying to avoid the camera's.

I believe in speed cameras they are a necessity while humans continue no regard for the safety of their fellow man. They catch people who dont care and therefore have no right to be on the road in the first place.
In Australia we have a 40 klm limit around schools during the beginning and ending times of school days. It is an absolute disgrace to watch how many drivers refuse to obey the speed limit and continue to put children at risk.
I feel the people who claim they are only revenue raisers are the reason that they exist. If people did not speed then it would become uneconomical to install and maintain these cameras.
Personally I also believe that there should be no warning given to the drivers . This way we can eliminate all the idiots quicker.
