You bump into some odd people on the Internet. The village FB page is no exception. Below is a rant against speed cameras (and also a rant against speed limits in general). It’s also one of those ‘speed isn’t to blame for accidents’, but where accidents have occurred the blame is (and I quote) ‘piss poor driving’. Presumably not piss poor driving due to excessive speeding though.
I do like the thought that speed detective devices are ‘a thinly-veiled revenue raiser catching unsuspecting motorists’. I mean, if the motorists are that ‘unsuspecting’ and unable to read clearly posted speed limit signs, then surely they shouldn’t be driving anyway?
Still, getting a few points will soon have their licences taken away and then they won’t be driving any more, so there’s that.
I’m sure this guy is a lovely guy and, away from his distorted vision of road common sense, he’s perfectly sane and rational. But on this point he’s so far beyond wrong the distance between his position and the right one is immeasurable. My case in point is that the lane with the up/down speed limits isn’t a barren lane. There are houses on it. And a hospital. And an operational airfield with various businesses. And a café/restaurant. But he feels it would be fine and dandy to have all these things feeding out onto the lane in a 60mph zone.
You could drive a coach and horses through this person’s mental gymnastics, but they still wouldn’t be able to see logic. Oh well.
