Much is made of bad roads, stretches of tarmac where a lot of accidents happen. There may be roads in poor condition, with sharp corners, or unexpected cambers but the reality is there are bad drivers, not roads.
In an attempt to make sure that we adhere to speed limits speed cameras are installed in various locations, or for those of us in the Highlands mobile cameras operate.
In order to give us warning of an impending speed check The Northern Safety Camera Partnership have a web site where they publish details of their mobile speed camera locations.
Just as Police officers cannot hide behind trees with speed guns, it seems that we need to know where to expect to see speed cameras in the coming days, does this not defeat their purpose to some extent?
