Not Safe for Saftey Partnership

Evidence, if it is still required, that Speed Cameras (roadside robotic tax collectors) are really all about fund raising and not road safety can be found on the front page of The Sunday Telegraph today.
A short piece by Richard Gray reports that so called road safety cameras on the M275 near Portsmouth are pointed only towards the three three slower lanes and not, importantly, towards the fast lane of the motorway. Apparently the Hampshire Road Safety Partnership, which installed the cameras in the interests of road safety of course, have confirmed that in the interests of safety it is not possible to place the cameras in a position where they are likely to be most effective at recording excessively speeding motorists. Yet an other piece of very British crass stupidity in the name of safety!
