    Thumbs down Tougher speed cameras 'due soon'

    A new generation of speed cameras that makes it harder for motorists to avoid being caught may soon get government approval, the manufacturers have said.

    Geoff Collins of Speed Check Services said approval was now in the "end game" stage and some 35 local authorities had expressed an interest in the system.
    It uses a network of cameras to work out average speed over a wide area.

    The new cameras can work in a network of up to 50 and can be spaced up to 15 miles (24km) apart (i.e covering the WHOLE length of the UK ).
    Association of British Drivers (ABA) plans were "completely irrelevant to safety"

    What planet are Labour on?

    Is it really a good thing that people like me who should be the real supporters of law and order are going to cheer on people burning speed cameras

    This will just increase the number of uninsured drivers with false plates on the road.

    I think they believe they can pay for the 400bn they've just blown by taxing the motorist even more...

    Read all about it, go on average 1mph over the strictly enforced speed limit anywhere on any motorway network and we'll 'ave you.

    Its a ridiculous idea, big brother will be in big trouble if they try to enforce this.
