    Spain continues to increase the installation of new style radar and camera traps. Many are now looking for infringements other than speeding...... mobile phone use by drivers and non compliance with seat belt law.
    Beware also the dreaded "average speed" cameras so common in the UK.

    Follow the link for more details.

    From what I have seen, heard ..... and experienced. ... in the UK, surely overkill is the norm when it comes to enforcement?

    I've said this before but if that were the case then the authorities would make a fortune from commercial vehicles exceeding 60 mph on the A19 between Tyneside and the A1 :) That's quite apart from the cars which exceed 70 :)

    It's mainly vans on the A19. So many drivers either don't know or don't care that they are limited to 60 mph.

    Only for speeding cameras. Dangerous driving of all kinds goes unpunished until the accident.

    Must admit that most of my driving in the UK is as a visitor these days and limited to London and the Eastern Home Counties where there appears to be an abundance of cameras, traps, average speed thingys, ANPR gadgets, LEZ equipment and of course the ubiquitous CCTV....... everywhere. In SE UK Big Brother is definately watching you lot!!

    Yes, all of that and nothing to improve safety. Where have all the good old coppers gone !

    This just got me thinking. When there were sufficient coppers available to police traffic offences was it perhaps a case of far less traffic for them to deal with rather than other factors?
