Council becomes first to ditch speed cameras


www.telegraph.co.uk

Conservative-run Swindon Borough Council wants to withdraw the £400,000 annual funding it pays the local safety camera partnership.

Councillor Peter Greenhalgh, who is in charge of the council's transport policy, said he would rather see the six-figure sum spent on local schemes such as traffic calming and vehicle-activated speed signs, which cost as little as £5,000 apiece to install.

In a direct attack on Government policy, Mr Greenhalgh said local authorities like Swindon did not see a penny of the revenue generated by speed cameras. Instead the money raised in fines went straight back to central government, he argued.

Hooray...at last..a slape in the face to the government by a council.

This is good news, but such a shame it has taken so long for everyone to start to realise the fraud of the speed camera.

Many others have and do see the real real reason behind the camera scheme, and have done things to slow the progress of the amount of fines handed out

The cameras have an almost cult following on the net as many sites, such as this one, www.speedcam.co.uk... will show.

And there are several maps that show the location of these cameras ...and my browser just crashed trying to load one of the sites with the maps due to the immense collectioin of location pointers on themap.
