The motorist remains a soft and lucrative target for those seeking to raise more and more revenue… petrol was increased by 1.25p per litre last week by Greedy Gordy.
Safety Camera Partnerships (can you think of a more repugnant oxymoron?) do raise money, although not as much as you would think. In 2004 they raised £112Million against an operating cost of £92Million, making a profit of just £20Million.
Many of the cameras are operated by third party companies and not by the police.
So someone is making a good living out of turning ordinary folks into criminals…… more on this one soon….
