The UK is bristling with traffic cameras like no other place on earth. Its out of control. It has in many cases got nothing to do with safety and everything to do with raising hard cash.

A traffic camera placement should only be allowed in accident black spots, for a short period 1-2 months after which time the camera must be removed and not returned for at least 12 months. It must be for safety and not for raising money.

For example its not acceptable to run dozens of cameras all around the north circular road in London as permanent fixtures that act more as road toll collection devices, for anyone a couple of mph over the speed limit.  

Why is this idea important?

because people should be allowed to drive their cars and move about the country without feeling that they are being constantly monitored and charged. This is a form of communism.
