Stop authorities from profiting from speeding and parking fines by paying the excess to charity

Speed cameras and parking offences have for a long time been seen as a "cash cow" for various government authorities. This has severly detracted from their original purpose and especially in the case of speed cameras they are just seen as another tax raising mechanism. A simple law should be employed that only allows the relevant authority to take enough money from the fines to finance the operation of the scheme. Any excess money left over must by law be given to charity. You could even be able to specify which charity you want to benefit from the excess from your own fine.

The Pope should fund his own visit completely

All visits by religious leaders of any faith should be funded in their entirety by their own supporters. This includes paying in full for their own security (policing).
