I hate speed trap cameras!

Why?  Well, not only are they dangerous (because the first thing anyone does when going past one is slam on their brakes and constantly watch the speedo rather than the road), and used more-often-than-not as a money generating opportunity (like when they’re put in supposed ‘black spot’ areas, and it’s a place where I’ve never known a traffic accident to happen in over two decades), but mostly… mostly because I was busted by one!!

Yes, while visiting my sister (or rather, leaving her place after visiting for the weekend) I got nabbed going 39mph in a supposed 30mph area.  I thought it was a 40pmh road, but I guess not!  So, basically, Julie; I blame you. 😉

Hopefully I get a to go on a ‘Speed Awareness Course’ rather than a £60 fine, but I may get points on my license either way.  Bummer!

    Bummer mate! I was just commenting about speed camera’s to my dad yesterday. I’m just not used to them at all. Never had them in Colorado or California – I think they’re not allowed in the US right?

    In any case what gets me the most is when everyone is doing between 78-82ish in an 80 zone and the freaks all jam on the brakes down to about 60 as you said. Pisses me off to no end!
