Speed cameras and mobile speed units

Scrap mobile safety camera partnership speed units. The mobile units are being used for income generation rather than prevent accidents. When ACPO policy is read it becomes quite clear the units are not operating as intended. Tragically many people loose their lives through speeding vehicles and reducing these events should be a priority. It can easily be identified where black spots are through statistical information. However, how many times are the mobile units deployed to these locations or targeted towards areas where ‘boy racers’ gather? The resources could be more usefully deployed to reduce accidents, and the information gained from these cameras should only be used for speed detection not a wider intrusive purpose.

Why is this idea important?

Scrap the BBC licence fee

Scrap the licence fee because it is an unnecessary form of tax and it is not good value for money. The organisation has got too big and beyond the scope it was intended. The organisation is very left wing and continues news reporting with a heavy Labour bias contrary to its broadcasting policy. The fee should be scraped or severely reduced. BBC recently overspent £100 million pounds on a build and no one was held to account. If it can waste money on this scale it can afford to reduce the licence fee or seek commercial funding. The taxpayer cannot and should not be expected to fund bias broadcasting and act as a political wing of the Labour Party.
