I'm writing for a rant! I thought the idea of speed cameras was to help improve safety on our roads, hence the fact that they are sometimes referred to as Safety Cameras. Why is it then that there is regularly a mobile speed camera unit at the north end of Grace Way where it is a dual carriageway? There are no schools or hospitals nearby, or anything that would seem to cause accidents. Indeed the footpath is even set well back from the road. It seems to me that this is purely a money-making exercise and not in the interests of safety! And yes, it has caught me out and many others. How lucrative.
