Cool Britain tells the truth about speed...

This was seen in a South African blog



Britain tells the truth about speed

Speed-trap cameras have been operating in the UK – and making a fat profit for their civilian operators – for some years but the government there has now admitted what this website and other sources have been saying for some time…

Speed, and speed alone, does not cause crashes – bad driving causes crashes and figures released in the UK last week showed that only one in 20 accidents was caused by excessive speed.

Yes, ONE IN TWENTY! Yet speed cameras persist to persecute people travelling at a reasonable speed given reasonable circumstances while the number of traffic cops on the streets continues to dwindle – and people continue to die.

A speed-trap camera can't record whether the "speeding" driver was licensed, drunk or drugged or whether his or her car was licensed and roadworthy, whether its tyres were bald or its brakes, lights and steering were working properly.

All of the above cause crashes but only human beings can identify them. When will South Africa wake up to the reality, put cops out in cars and on motorcycles and persecute the real perpetrators or the carnage on our roads – bad drivers in unroadworthy cars and minibus taxis?

You mean it isn't for the wellfare of other drivers?
