False picture


In the course of my work over the next three years, I will travel over 100,000 miles and pass tens of thousands of speed cameras. Just four misjudgements of the speed limit and my licence - and hence my livelihood - could be taken away.

I strongly believe that the ICE should be supporting research into the causes of accidents, better signage of speed limits and danger areas, standards for the siting of speed cameras, and the consistent implementation of such standards.

The current trend to hide revenue raising behind a safety faþade is one that I consider the ICE should be challenging through the application of sound judgements and common sense.
