There are 2 (for each direction) near me on a 40mph stretch of the A6 next to an accident black spot junction. Its had a bit of an effect, but personally think the Cameras could of been better placed (i.e. either side of the junction but both are on the same side).
they are DEFINATELY staying the same, they say that they would become ignored and disrespected. 30 is staying 30 single carriage way staying at 60 and dual staying at 70.
i dont see how we can call for limits to be raised on motorways, the state of them is so crap it would just become dangerous.
they are only calling for rural limits to be changed, to variable limits rather that national speed limit everywhere so that tight 90 degree bend round the back wont come as a suprise if youve never been in the area. so you cant argue with that either.
Near me we have a stretch of road that in a 6 mile stretch goes from 60 to 40 to 30 to 60 to 30 to 40 to 60 to 30!!! Police sit with their cameras along there because it's easy pickings as there are that many signs you can easily miss one!!
and scarily, you would still be found guilty, I kid you not. ONLY emergency service vehicles can pass red lights, with no exceptions. I only know as I have a family member who tried to argue it......worst thing was the ambulance was still in shot when she got done!!!!
The ones that are currently annoying me are the ones that are placed on the straight, good line of site, ONLY PASSING POINT IN MILES!!!! I have been driving to Scotland and back a bit lately and the cameras on the A1 and 698 are a joke, there are about 25 between Newcastle and Edinburgh! (most covered with platic bags I might add)
Put more police on the roads, at least there is a level of common sense in some poliemans heads!
