Speed cam­era scep­ti­cism

Southern Telegraph - - Opinion - Ric Collins, Rock­ing­ham

Par­don me for be­ing some­what scep­ti­cal about the use of speed cam­eras.

While school zones are a cri­te­rion for place­ment of mo­bile speed cam­eras, one won­ders at the rea­son­ing be­hind the lo­ca­tion of such a mo­bile cam­era on the verge out­side Rock­ing­ham Se­nior High School on the last day of term at 3.45pm.

All the stu­dents had gone home, the cross­ing at­ten­dants had packed up their flags and gone, the staff carpark was empty and for the next two weeks the road speed limit would be 70km/h.

Was it in aid of safety or rev­enue that the mo­bile speed cam­era was so lo­cated at this time?
