Is there anything about revenue that you don't like?


Yes it coming out of my pockets for no reason and going to the government.  Much rather it went into or stayed in my pockets...  you?

Me?

I don't contribute.

I discovered a little trick, many years ago, and since then I've never looked back.

Would you like me to share it with you?

Okay, here it is:

I don't break the law!

Yeah, pretty outrageous, huh?

I learnt pretty quickly that if I don't break the law, the police won't issue me with fines.

And, on the odd occasion that I do break the law, I'm more than happy to add some money to consolidated revenue.

Would you rather see people get away with it?

There was this urban legend about an officer who manned a speed camera on some stretch of highway known for speedsters. One week, he had very few people caught for speeding along that stretch of road, much lower than usual. After a few shifts of not much, the officer packed it in early and headed back to the station. On his way around the corner, he spotted a child standing on the side of the road with a big sign. He thought perhaps the child was selling something. The officer turned the van around and went back to see what was happening.

As he approached the child near the side of the road, the sign read in big block letters "SPEED CAMERA AHEAD". The officer passed the child, aware of the fact that he could not do much other than caution the child or perhaps notify the parents. He drove on to get that turn off he had before. As he neared his turn, he saw another child down the road further. He abandoned his turn off and continued down the road to the child also carrying a sign.

The sign said in big block letters "TIPS!". Beside the child was this bucket filled with $1 and $2 coins.

QLD police union: hidden speed cameras are ‘revenue raisers’; don’t save lives


The head of the Queensland Police Union (QPU) has publically acknowledged that covert and hidden speed cameras do not save lives and are indeed nothing more than revenue raisers for the state government.




The police union says the cameras don't save lives, the politicians have lied to us they use it for revenue raising.

The lefties in this forum are ok with politicians lying to us about speed cameras they like seeing people fleeced when there is no evidence these cameras save lives.

If you find it too hard to obey the law, hand in your licence.

Simples!

Leave the road to us adults.

I drive 10 klm to the freeway every day.
In that 10 klm the speed limit changes 12 times
50 up my street
then into the 40 k zone
out of that and back to 50
then onto a 70 zone, at the roundabout its 60
then back to 70 100 meters up the road
Then 80 klm for a short spurt until yet another school zone, 60 then 40
then back to 80 until just before the interchange
60 through the interchange and then onto the freeway.

That's 12 speed changes in 10 klm some only meters apart.

And yes the speed camera car haunts this area, as do cops on a regular basis.

Anyone with an ounce of common sense would break the whole thing up into perhaps 3 zones and do away with most of the changes.

But the real trap is up near Coolongalook heading north.
There is a long steep hill, followed by a long steep down hill.
Nice shiny new road, two lanes wide and an 80k speed limit.

One guess as to where the speed camera hides.
They have even trimmed the trees on the side of the road so they can hide.
and isn't it funny how ther warning signs all seem to get blown over, and they never notice.


There shouldn't be any warning signs.



You certainly are just one of them really anoying people in life aren't you? Never any fun...always got your goody two shoes on. Wouldn't know real life if it smaked ya in the mouth.

Or you're a liar and just trolling this forum for bites cause dude, whatever the fkk you are, no one lives like you post on here....no one. You're against everything.

Hey moron!

Have you not read the posts?

Do you not comprehend?

Are you so thick that you just cannot understand?

It matters not that you obey the law.
The $cameras are set up to trick you.
They are inaccurate, wildly so.
They do not save lives

The mob that runs the speed camera cars was kicked out of the USA for diddling  the devices to get more revenue.
Do you honestly believe that they are not doing the same thing here?
And without honest, open and transparent policies in place, we will not be able to ever find out or prove it.

The whole thing is simply a scam.
You can and will (if you drive anything other than a dinky) be booked for speeding.

Then the system ACTIVELY PREVENTS YOU FROM PROVING YOU WASN'T.

They will not allow you access to the records of calibration.
They refuse to provide the proof of accuracy.
There is a calculation required of ALL calibrated equipment called the
ESTIMATE OF UNCERTANTY.

This gives you an estimate of uncertainty of a piece of equipment based on all possible factors affecting the equipment capability.

They will not even entertain allowing any of this data out, if they have even done it.

ACA tried to access this data through FOI laws and were refused.

If an individual tries they require you to
1 pay a non refundable fee for them to work out how much it will cost.
2 then pay a non refundable fee for accessing said data.

These fees are substantial, it ACA's case , over $50,000.
And then they refused to allow the data to be sourced.
WHAT ARE THEY HIDING?

The whole thing is as crooked as a dogs hind leg
And idiooots like you allow them to get away with it.

Wake up FOOL.

The question is two fold, fixed cameras really only slow down people leading up to the camera so I see no safety value in them whatsoever.
Mobile cameras maybe slow down a lot of people but where I live I know all the spots they set up on so again they are pseudo mobile so they might get many to slow down.
At best a speed camera might have a marginal effect on safety.

There are better ways to improve safety, build better roads, make better drivers, police other bad driving habits ..... more visible police ........ to me the police look lazy !

Good.

What do you have against revenue?



The police are there to protect society not fund themselves.
But I do agree that you don't need to speed.
