Law-breakers should be fined
I am astonished by the attitude of Sue Blades of Whitby (March 24) regarding the speed camera in Whitford Brown and can only assume she is a person who breaks the law (that is, speeds) and feels the rest of the world is at fault for her misdemeanours.
Take responsibility for your own actions.
A person who complies with the legal requirements of the road would not be concerned about a speed camera.
If the camera is in Whitford Brown as a money-making enterprise, remember, it is only the law-breakers who pay, and rightly so.
What’s the problem? The camera is there to catch lawbreakers.
Anyone else should not be concerned or have a problem. generously supported our community orchestra in buying some essential equipment.
The orchestra is made up of many children from our Cannons Creek schools.
The Lions club has supported many other charities and community organisations for years, all from the proceeds of the market.
If the running of the market is given to a commercial operator, all such community support will cease.
It appears to be a greedy council which collects thousands of dollars each year from the market and wants more.
For a long time this was one of the few markets in the region and we would often see people coming from far away.
Now there has been a proliferation of such markets all over the region, which has an obvious effect.
Despite this, our market still holds its own as one of the best in the region.
I ask the many community groups which have been generously supported from the proceeds of the market to stand up and support the Lions club, so it can continue its good work.
