Another none story from the echo. If they are going to print this story then they should tell us where the cameras will be on a certain day not they will operate anywhere in the area.
There used to be the web for Dorset safety camera and that told us where they would be on any day of the week of the week am and pm. It gave three or four places and they would BE THE PLACE THEY WERE OPERATING. This was a very useful site but then they also started to generalise the areas so just a waste of space.
I don't advocate speeding but if gives you a chance to prepare for other breaking hard when they spot the camera van.

its in here pretty much once a month, I'm guessing (using my common sense) that some of the locations change! (crazy intense stuff) I'm also guessing (again deploying some common sense) that this is printed when released by Dorset Police's press office. You see the idea of the road safety partnership is that people don't speed. i know, i know you all think that its just to make the Police money but if we think about it, if you don't speed you won't get caught! now i actually have 6 points both times i was speeding however i don't **** and moan about it! so surely if the locations are printed and people slow down even if the van isn't there then its objective complete? Anyway i shall leave you ladies to come up with some whiney counter argument

The only reason the Echo keep rehashing the DC$P locations is because they know so many people love/hate these law enforcers/parasites that they will keep coming back to this page and posting comments at each other..... which means their website receives more hits which in turn raises their potential income from advertisers.

Oh and mobile speed traps should be banned. They have been 100% proven to cause fatal accidents.

We all know the real reason was to continue to maximise their income from unsuspecting motorists who perhaps stray 5mph over a deliberately reduced speed limit!

And once again the same roads listed. All busy with a reduced speed limit. All with places for the parasites to hide around a blind corner or half hidden in a lay-by. None are quiet country roads. None are in quiet urban areas where perhaps there may have been an accident. None are by schools. I wonder why!

Quite correctly as well, at least according to our resident expert on the subject, as using mobile speed cameras there could cause the drivers to brake sharply, lose control and crash. This is of course the responsibility of the officers operating the cameras and in no way anything to do with the people exceeding the speed limit.

There are nearly 10 times as many deaths due to hospital blunders including lack of cleanliness and drinking water, as road deaths, and about 15% of road deaths have exceeding the speed limit as only one of usually several factors. Speed cameras cover about 1% of road space and don't even eliminate speeding at their locations. So the preventable deaths in hospitals are something like 10000 times greater than could ever be imagined for speed cameras even before you start to consider the negative effects which suggest an overal negative effect on road safety anyway! Yes governments think short term but one good thing they could do is to send all the parasites in the speed industry into hospitals with mops and bottles of water.

20,000 dead each year from blunders? Where on earth do you get that figure from? The 'facts' you use to justify your standpoint on speed cameras become more and more absurd. Are you starting to lose the plot, Ian?

In the long term they'd save a fortune on the NHS, but when has any government ever thought long term, they only want to win the next election..
There are nearly 10 times as many deaths due to hospital blunders including lack of cleanliness and drinking water, as road deaths, and about 15% of road deaths have exceeding the speed limit as only one of usually several factors.

Not sure where your 20000 comes from, I'm thinking more like 13000, for example

000-needless-deaths-

red-review

and about 1750 road deaths

/faqs/detail.aspx?fa
q=296

13000/1750 is 7.4, I would say that it is quite reasonable to suggest that 7.4 is "nearly 10", most would be astonished to hear that there are more preventable deaths going on under NHS care than road deaths at all but that is exactly how it is.

So nothing absurd about that. The fact that we have armies of jobsworths and multi £million pound businesses targeting a fraction of 200 preventable deaths due to speeding in the uk (but failing of course) while more than 10,000 die while under NHS care due to things like lack of water and infection explains very well my standpoint on speed cameras.
