YOu should have kept that back in case you needed to trade it in against a speeding ticket from her.

ive put £60 aside for my next ticket, the wankers go on the dual carridgeway now. pedestrians with camera's and high vis jacket's.

The dumb fuck's decided to go right next to a roundabout tho where people are slowing down, funnily enough its same roundabout where we get footage of 'sideways' driving. its quite lethal in wet,

should have zero tolerence, run em over

me / are you in the force :lcop:

her / no im a civilian on speed control

me/ do you get paid

her/ no i do it to stop the speeding idiots (by this time she was digging a big hole for her self)

me/so is that gun expencive then

her/ oh yes but if it saves a lifes its worth it, here have a look down on this screen and point it at the on comming traffic,

me/ wot happens if they are speeding, (as i hold the gun at the traffic and beg for me mate to come past)

her/ then we fill in this sheet and they get a fine (with a smile on here face)

me /so is it a good idea to plays silly games with an expencive item paid for by the tax payers your trying to catch,

her/ wot you mean (face has changed and she goes funny color) :lcop:

thats when i show her the pic and tell her im going to report her for miss use,

if i got told a civilian had caught me speeding and i'd got a fine i'd say prove it. Or does this camera record footage?
Some may record aswell!! most are just the gun only, how could this stand up in court?

Yep seen 2 pedestrians today in warrington with a speed tri-pod camera.
Watch out those of you that use the walton-drag (just past the walton arms pub) going towards warrington from runcorn/moore.

To$$ers. Two old men who looked like 2 retired coppers!!

Lucky enough 2 wagons warned all the on-coming traffic :lol: b4 i got there.

Some peeps are missing the most important bit. They don't send you fines. They can't. They just send you warning letters (ignore the bit about further action, it's a bluff - they might come and visit you but they can't do anything else).

Anyway, what's all this immature BS going on? If you don't want to pay the fine don't do the 'crime'. It's simple. You know the law so you can't complain if you get caught and fined by a real copper. Cars are for grown-ups - if you're going to act like a spoilt teenager then I suggest staying off the roads until you've grown up.

I don't like speed cameras but I understand the purpose and if I get caught then that's most probably my fault!

Anyone like to disagree with me?

If a new party came forward that would stop all this crap then I bet they would win.
