The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

You Can't Have It Both Ways

I have often commented on the idea that has been successfully implanted in the public mind that speed cameras' main function is to raise revenue. Most people believe that to be the case.

Yet here we are with a story in the Sunday Times that speed cameras are to be 'axed' to -er- save money.

One or the other can't be right, can it?
