Box clever?


In the box headed 'Seen to be fair' in your Camera Controversy article (NCE 22 January), the implication is given that cameras must be brightly coloured, clearly visible and that the public must be able to find out where they are situated.

The article ignores the fact that many police forces use mobile cameras as speed traps and that in any case failure on the part of the authorities to follow the guidelines does not give rise to any defence in court.

Perhaps if RoSPA stopped 'fuming' and helped to create an honest official attitude, the philosophical chasm could start to be bridged.
