Re: are'nt our policemen wonderful
the reason they are so fond of cameras for picking on motorists and generating stealth taxes is
the figures look good when some politician or whoever gets
a snappy looking spreadsheet in front of them
so they think they have quantifiable 'proof' of crime "being cut"
thus they get bigger bonuses and budgets
only yesterday a colleage of mine had their car crashed into and written off while they were in it (and stationary!) by an underaged/uninsured motorcyclist (who subsequently ran off from the scene)
and were required to present their documents to the cops - licence/insurance etc
