    Default Cheeky speed camera?

    Just a quick post about a speed/safety camera I came across today on my drive to work. The speed Camera was for a 30mph zone. The thing that made me think was where the short white lines for the camera on the road are painted the last of those lines was start of a 40mph speed limit sign, and with there being a hill its very easy to creep passed the 30 to the 40. shouldn't that camera be further back to catch motorists speeding in the 30 zone. 30mph when entering speed/safety camera marking and 40mph when you leave it..

    They'll do anything to try and catch people now.

    I got caught a few years ago doing 35 in a 30 zone (just after a 40 zone), and the camera van was a rusty old F reg Transit!

    Don't even get me started on Portable speeding camera's in Perth.

    They put them on hills (Which is against their code of conduct, but people don't appeal them so they make plenty of money)

    They hide them in bushes (Which is against their code of conduct to not HIDE safety cameras in any way, as they are there to SLOW drivers down)

    And they place them rear facing IN Bushes on hills so you don't even know you've been snapped doing 5KM's over the limit.

    I'm all for SAFETY cameras placed on the side of roads to slow drivers down in black spot areas, but hiding them, not signing them after driving through them is seriously annoying me. I've appeal two speeding fines (Both placed on hills, and only exceeding the limit by 4-8 KM/H) and won. It just proves too many operators are unqualified and unfit to use these devices.

    There was even a report in the eastern states of point to point speed cameras issuing 1.7 Million dollars worth of fines, and 90% of them being incorrect. With only 10% appealing these fines until it was published by a major newspaper.

    TEST them. TRAIN the operators. And Don't DOG the Public. Then i'll be all for the use of them.

    Angry ****ed off rant over.

    EDIT:

    They also camouflage the new cameras to blend with the bush.
