Speed camera hypocrisy

Nice illustration of speed camera hypocrisy in a story from today’s Argus. The residents of Brighton Road, Lancing, want speed restrictions on a stretch of dual carriageway where a pedestrian was recently killed. One resident said:

“I’m not a big fan of speed cameras at all but if that’s what it takes, so be it.”

Or to put it another way:

“Speed cameras near my house improve safety, but speed cameras elsewhere are an evil New Labour tax on motorists. Why? Because when other people speed it’s dangerous, but when I speed it’s safe.”

Hear, hear! Down with other people speeding!
