Speed camera fines here in Wales averaged at Â£3.40 for every man, woman and child in this country which is more than Â£10m in total compared to Â£2.13 in England and just Â£1.42. In North Wales, the area controlled by infamous anti-speed freak Chief Constable of North Wales Police, the average was a ridiculously extortionate Â£5.82!
Speed camera expert Stephen Mesquita, who obtained the figures through Freedom of Information requests from the Department for Transport, said, â€œAll this reinforces the motoristsâ€™ instincts that speed cameras are unfair. There needs to be proper control over some of the more camera-happy counties if the perception of speed cameras is to change.â€?
Jim Moore, manager of Mid & South Wales Safety Camera Partnership said â€œThe simple message is â€“ donâ€™t speed, and you have nothing to fear.â€?
I think the message is, if you have a car thats faster than a robin reliant, avoid North Wales like the plague and move to Scotland.
