All people will do is either avoid the area or stick to limit. No warnings should be given as the are breaking the law if speeding. Tip up and set up to catch speeders without warning and do not say people will slow down if they know where the cameras are, People will only stop speeding if it costs them points and money. You wouldn't tell a burglar to avoid a certain house because the police are waiting would you.

How idiotic publicising the locations. The morons who risk the lives of competent law abiding motorists and the pedestrians and innocents they injure or kill should expect covert police operations, not ones like this which will pre warn those selfish incompetents that they will get caught. What a waste of police time and money. Would they put a sign up by a known drug dealers usual location and say " you're being watched and we're here" ??? No!!!! because the drug dealers would go elsewhere. That's all they will do with the drivers who only care about themselves and proceed to break the law. Pathetic.

The upcoming mobile camera locations have been advertised for years on the WY safety partnership website. It's nothing new, the T&A are only reposting what is already there, so all you keyboard warriors and front room politicians need to find something else to bluster on about like people feeding the ducks in Bradford Moor park, when there's a sign telling them not to.

The only thing these devices detect are drivers exceeding the speed limit. No checks on fitness of vehicle or driver. Not even a check on insurance or test cert or ANPR for VED validation. Half a job harry. But we are not bothered about that are we? Only the revenue matters to run the scheme and the speed awreness courses. One or two may get points or court action.

Freedom of travel? Don't think so! I'm sure most motorists understand that wreckless/drink drivers need to be locked up: but why is the Police collecting taxes for the government: remember your Oathes are to serve and protect the people under COMMON LAW. These fines Are extra judicial and not constitutionally allowed: in otherwords the fines and points are against our laws and restrict our travel/ rights of passage.

It's illegal to make speed cameras hidden. Drivers must be made aware that they're there.

And have you anything to say on those massive yellow ones that you can spot from a mile off?

I work hard in the driver training industry with both learners, full licence holders and in partnership with road safety organisations and other groups promoting safety. Yes I do have an opinion of speed cameras the " big yellow ones" .... I detest them. They do nothing to promote driver safety as people know where they are and speed up between them. It comes down to exactly the point I made in my first post - speed enforcement MUST be covert. It's pointless publishing when/where "traps " are. Everyone should abide by the laws or be prepared to be caught, charged and fined. The problem is European human rights law... It states that that the police MUST not use entrapment tactics. A prime example of where one recent ish law has a mock on effect on the enforcement of another more serious law. Crazy I know.

If you receive a Fixed Penalty Notice, whether it's for speeding, shoplifting or whatever - you don't get a criminal record.

As for the old chestnut about killing children - don't drive at all unless it's absolutely necessary - You MIGHT hit a small child

I know these things because my mate is a civilian worker, speed camera van operator. I never mentioned police cars.

To be valid a NIP for speeding must be issued on behalf of the Chief Constable.

As for the "Casualty Reduction Partnership", the fact their website is a co.uk and not a gov.uk speaks volumes...

just like to reiterate they should also pick up uninsured cars/ cars without valid MOT`s / invalid no plates, mobile phone users / non seat belt wearers & cars with too many occpants: if the resources are being used why not utilise them to the full potential: is there more danger by a driver exceeding 30mph than a driver with no valid mot/insurance or using a mobile phone or not wearing a seatbelt? Also suggest a few placed down all arterial roads into the City - Thornton Rd, Gt Horton, Leeds, Wakefield etc, I personally get hacked off when speeders get penalised when other driving offences appear to be acceptable / tolerated

Why are they obsessed with speed? Cameras are a blunt instrument operating 24/7. There are times when it can be appropriate to drive at 40 in a 30 surely it should be about the right speed at the right time allowing for traffic, weather, time of day, road conditions etc? Instead they are busy dropping the 40s to 30mph and the 30s to 20 mph! Cars are much safer now than they have ever been with modern tyres, brakes, suspensions etc.
As someone above said scameras don't detect the drunk driving a car with no MOT, bald tyres and no instance or road tax. Maybe that's the point those drivers are the type who can't pay and won't pay fines even if the car is registered at their address. Whereas you and me driving our street legal car stone cold sober, send us a fine and we meekly pay up! It's like running any business target your resources at the major revenue stream.....us!

As I was priced off the road years ago and have little chance of ever being able to use my full clean driving license again I don't really care any more so I'll just suggest that they make it mandatory for every car to be restricted by means of the engine management system that the vast majority of cars have to a top speed of 70mph. Any cars that cannot be restricted should pay higher insurance and receive more penalty points. Also if the car has onboard satnav this could further restrict the speed to the maximum for that road. It's all a bit control freakish with a hint of big brother in there for good measure but that's the world we live in and you've let it get this way. Some people just can't get enough of being controlled.

I see. So you don't have a problem with everyone else's rights being taken away so long as yours remain and you are allowed to break the law whenever you believe you won't get caught? Lets face it this is the direction we are headed in where everything is monitored and controlled and the only reason they haven't adopted the measures I've suggested is that the motor industry would lose a fortune and the police would have less of a revenue making role. Your argument sounds similar to the gun lobby's argument in America in that you believe you should have the right to own a lethal weapon, which a car traveling at high speed is, because you can be trusted not to kill anyone. Accidents happen but if driving above the speed limit is it still just an accident?

I have a car that will do 160mph so what I thought it was a free Country. Rule no1 don't get caught . Chill out lighten up, theirs a lot of people worse off than you.[/p][/quote]I see. So you don't have a problem with everyone else's rights being taken away so long as yours remain and you are allowed to break the law whenever you believe you won't get caught? Lets face it this is the direction we are headed in where everything is monitored and controlled and the only reason they haven't adopted the measures I've suggested is that the motor industry would lose a fortune and the police would have less of a revenue making role. Your argument sounds similar to the gun lobby's argument in America in that you believe you should have the right to own a lethal weapon, which a car traveling at high speed is, because you can be trusted not to kill anyone. Accidents happen but if driving above the speed limit is it still just an accident?[/p][/quote]Correct, now you are getting the hang of it. You would love to be free but sadly your circumstances don't allow it. However please stop being a hypocrite. Also please try and be a bit more grateful for all you do get. alive and awake

I am all in favour of the speed cameras to catch the morons who think it's acceptable to drive faster than the limits state, often driving too close to the driver in front of them or dangerously over taking. However, may I suggest that the cameras are additionally used in other areas of Bradford where the majority of incidents happen, hence the higher insurance costs in these areas. For example; Leeds road, manningham lane, legrams lane and continue the cameras right down great Horton road rather than just at the top end as you're reaching Clayton heights.

I have driven the length and breadth of England, and still get about around a bit, but nowhere are the driving standards, worse than Bradford. Too many clearly cannot have past a driving test.

Your actually wrong there. Speeding isn't actually illegal and your not actually breaking any laws when speeding. 'Speeding' comes under the road traffic "act" which isn't a law. the police constables who usually are the ones implementing this "act" have no legal authority to do so. If you look at the oath that police constables took when they joined the police force, everything is clear for everyone to see. Look it up and you'll be surprised. Ps. I'm not justifying idiots driving around like lunatics risking the lives of innocent pedestrians, just clarifying the laws that are in place to PROTECT us, not to exploit us.

The Road Traffic Act 1991 is most definately a law, however it was enacted before scameras were introduced.

Some people have an idea that maybe late at night, or when the roads are empty, they should be able to drive faster - say 40, instead of 30. But what they don't consider while urging that increase is the other traffic joining the road from junctions or driveways and other non-motorised road users - cyclists, horses, walkers, or stray animals.

I ran over a dog some months ago, and you could say it shouldn't have been there, on its own in the dark. But it was, and it ran out in front of me. I was only doing about 32mph and I still couldn't stop in time. I still feel terrible about it.

So next time you're behind me, in a 30 zone, flashing your lights and driving up my bumper because "There's no reason why we shouldn't drive at 40 or even 50, I mean the road's empty!" please, be patient; back off.
