The sheer hypocrisy endemic today is no better demonstrated than by the siting of the socalled 'speed cameras'.
No-one with the least respect for safety can dispute the need for some means of discouraging excessive speeds in dangerous areas, but it is the justification for them, plus the sheer arrogance of the 'partnerships' which is so offensive.
East Lancashire has gone way past saturation point, with cameras sited in the most ridiculous places.
For example, the approach to the M65 junction at Clayton-leMoors has a camera where I have personally never been able to reach a speed over 10 mph, the traffic is so dense. Meanwhile Chatburn Road between Clitheroe Royal Grammar School and Clitheroe Hospital, becomes a speedtrack outside office hours, a highly dangerous situation - yet no camera.
