Here are few other quotes from the article in question:

[ QUOTE ]

Money from speeding fines could be better spent on "warning signage and better road engineering".

[/ QUOTE ]

[ QUOTE ]

There are now 6,000 speed cameras in the UK - 2,500 of them are mobile. And the number of camera fines has risen from 200,000 in 1995 to more than two million last year.

[/ QUOTE ]

But Ben Hamilton-Baillie, of European road safety and environment scheme 'Shared Space' has come up with the following:

[ QUOTE ]

Transport researchers have found removing white lines, or narrowing streets have just as much effect in cutting drivers' speed. Making roads look narrower by colouring their edges or planting trees on the pavement increases a driver's sense of danger, making them more conscious of oncoming traffic.

[/ QUOTE ]

Which would seem to indicate they think that speed alone is the problem... iamwithstupid.gif
