The following link contained in this email pertains to a survey undertaken by the Ausitor General abut wether or not speed camera's improve safety or are just there for revenue. I would appreciate everyone taking the time to fill out this survey and have their say on this matter. Up till now speed cameras have been generating millions of dollars of revenue for governments. In many cases there have been sneaky and underhanded methods used to catch people out like placing cameras on down hill slopes, not clearly listing speed limits and lowering the speed threshold from 10km/h to 5km/h even though it is a well known fact that vehicles from factory are inacurate up to 10 km/ph. Nor do courts accept speedo inacuracy as an excuse for being booked by cameras.
Media campaigns have also been put in place trying to say that speeding drivers are the cause of most accidents when in actual fact driver incompetence and general mistakes are the true cause of car accidents and not the average joe sitting on 5 - 10 km/ph overt the limit. This propoganda needs to stop and I ask everyone to have raise their voice on this matter anjd tell the governments to stick the cameras wher the sun dont shine. If governments really want to improve road safety then they should put more police out on the roads to enforce the laws.
