i doubt it will ever ome to fruit about the speed detectors and as was said earlier they'll just be mad smaller and well hidden. Just disguise it as a set of gauges or something.

Transport Secretary Alistair Darling said Britain had one of the best road safety records in the world but the Government was committed to cutting deaths.

Actually, the government is only committed to fleecing motorists because they are an easy and captive target.

If the accident rates dropped to zero, they would still keep increasing the fines and penalties - it's got F.A. to with road safety and everything about filling the treasury coffers.

We are just a money cow that they keep milking...........Bastards.

They can't catch many burglars/rapists/muggers/vandals so they nail us, to make it look as though they are keeping law and order under control.

As said before, the radar/laser detectors/jammers will just become more covert again - just like they were a few years ago when they were illegal.

According to that article it says it bans all radar / laser detectors but not GPS, so what about the GPS systems with in built laser detection :dunno: Sounds like we are all screwed!

just dont speed
Very valid point Gav, but on occasion we can all slip up.

Camera warning devices serve as a useful reminder that we should be paying more attention to the speedo than the scenery/music/conversation that has briefly distracted us.

If the governments concern was purely safety, detectors would be an asset to that end, but it isn't - so in their view it just a revenue reducer, so they ban it again...........
