More concern for money than safety; FEEDBACK.

THIS is the first time I've ever written to any media outlet, but feel compelled to having seen your headline about this diabolical speeding camera story, of which I am a "victim".

I was "caught" committing the heinous and damaging crime against society by doing 38mph in March 2014 and missed the deadline to go on a speed awareness course, therefore my case will be going to court in the next week or so.

I have written a plea of guilty by post, stating in my plea of mitigation that I have held a clean driving license for 23 years.

Personally, I think it is disgusting that the council can be allowed to get away with this kind of cynical, money-grabbing behaviour - situating a speed camera at such a location with such an inappropriate speed limit, with such an inappropriate lack of signage, only placing one after the speed camera itself.

By shrugging their shoulders to try and avoid any kind of responsibility for this, it shows their diabolical and cynical attitude towards motorists and shows they are far more concerned about grabbing money than anything to do with road safety.
