More than 60,000 vehicles have been caught speeding in Cockermouth’s 30mph zones over the last four months, new figures reveal.
Have your say
This is a lie
60000 motorists have not been caught speeding.
They have been recorded at driving at a speed that can not been virified due to the fact that these sighns are not calibrated to the accuracy required to provide a conviction.
Lets have the correct information please T&S
Here we go again, another headline to support the fact that the poor motorist is being fleeced of his cash.
Lets get one thing striaight, if speeding is a serious issue then put police there and police it.
This is another piece of propaganda that is aimed at creating a argument to make it acceptable to continue to price the motorist of the road.
Pippin - a child was once killed outside the school that is true. However, was a motorist prosecuted ... erm, No. This proves nothing except that occasionally terrible things happen. Every day on the roads 10 people in the UK are seriously injured or killed (average). The only way of ensuring this does not happen is to take all vehicles off the road. Back to reality please - we moan if the Police target the driver, yet we moan and demand action when vehicles are driven at speeds over an unrealistically low limit. I personally tended to drive at those silly illuminated, meaningless devices in order to satisfy my craving to see a down in the mouth face! I know I am not alone either. Time to get off the soap boxes really, and return to the question - how many of these vehicles exceeding the speed limit was involved in an accident? None .... oh, well that's not a problem realy then is it???
