FIGURES obtained by The Sun show that in three years, Britain’s ten most prolific speed cameras have netted £30million in fines.
One, on the A10 in Cheshunt, Herts, has nabbed more than 38,000 motorists. And that’s prompted critics to say that if a camera is supposed to be a deterrent, it can’t possibly be doing its job if 38,000 people haven’t even seen it.
I’d go further.
If everyone ignores a law, the law plainly must be wrong.
And if 38,000 people have broken the speed limit on the A10, the speed limit there is very obviously too low.
