Expert slams cameras

SPEED cameras have come under fire in an article by Stephen Mesquita, a writer and publisher for the AA.

Writing in the latest edition of the Philip’s UK atlas, Mesquita says the current camera programme makes it too easy for the otherwise law-abiding motorist to break the law.

‘The whole thing is a complete mess and is in need of a radical shake-up,’ he said.

‘Speed cameras that save lives are of course a good thing. But what we have now is a system that is hard to understand, inconsistently operated and which turns too many otherwise law-abiding motorists into law-breakers.

‘In turn that alienates the police from the motorist. It’s not a good situation.’
