I was saddened to note that the 'speed kills' brain-washing campaign has captured our President's attention.
The Institution ought first to consider the facts as well as the opinions of its membership - 59% of the NCE 500 voted for cameras to be made more visible.
Since the introduction of speed cameras, the number of people killed on British roads has risen from 3409 in 2000 to 3443 in 2001. The government has drawn in substantial camera revenue but not made roads any safer.
The reason is that speed does not kill, bad driving does. As an Institution, we ought to be advocating driver education.
