Dangerous Drop In Traffic Officers Planned

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

None of us can say that we like speed cameras but we have to admit that not all are simply there to generate income for the local authority, some have a genuine use in built up areas, near to schools and along stretches of road that had previously been an accident black spot. So whilst many of us are generally pretty happy that many local authorities are preparing to switch off many of the static Gatso cameras it’s a bit more shocking to hear that there is likely to be a cull of traffic officers. They don’t just stand by hedges with a speed camera they do an amazing job dealing with and clearing up messes left by either unfortunate or irresponsible road users. Just their presence on the streets makes criminals along with motorists think twice so I’m thinking this is a move too far. If anything, with many people becoming desperate as a result of our poor economy, crime is likely to increase rather than decrease so we need more police on the streets and in cars, not less. As for safety on our roads we have the lowest death rate in Europe, if the Government forces through the 25% cut in police costs that will affect the number of cars on our streets, that figure is likely to climb again, something none of us want. Do you agree that this is going too far? By Graham Hill
