Amend the destination for revenue from speed cameras

Comment 29th July 2010

Speeding fines are a form of voluntary tax – anyone who doesn't want to pay them can simply stick to the speed limit and they will not be fined.  Given that the offences take place in a local area why not allow local authorities to collect the revenue generated by this voluntary tax and invest it in their local area – either generally or perhaps with a hypothecated purpose of road repairs.

Why does this matter?

Locally generated revenue is returned to the local area.
