Traffic camera's

Introduce speed / traffic camera's which could be either mobile or fixed. It is rare to see the police out doing speed checks now given the pressures on their budget whilst the standard of driving from a significant minority is very poor; Richmond Hill and Santon are particulary bad in terms of excess speed for example.

Why the contribution is important

Two fold in that it would raise significant revenue to be re invested in the police and roads plus it would improve road user safety by reducing accidents whether caused by speeding or even mobile phone use for example?

Other car drivers, motocyclists, pedal bike riders and pedestrians would all benefit and the fact that the offender pays makes it all the more appealing given the innocent aren't being penalised.

    Another solution to a problem that doesn't exist. It would only serve as an additional revenue stream a stealth tax on the motorist.
