Investigative journalism the slogan this blog needs to adopt.
Give the perpetrator a medal. These things are anti-motorist cash cows and a classic modern example of the modern British powers that be abusing their authority. Some crimes are justified.
Would hardly call men the best would you
These cameras are nothing more than revenue collecting machines.
The problem with enforcing traffic laws is the methodology, which targets the majority instead of the minority of idiots. Tougher punishments for the idiot boy racers who kill pedestrians and lay off the ordinary motorist who strays several miles an hour over the limit. Cameras, bumps are the rest are the nanny state's war against all of us which reached new levels of insanity under Labour and has not been rolled back far enough under the current lot.
anonymous@00:59Good point.I am also concerned about the situation which exists whereby those caught speeding can opt for a "speed awareness course" instead of a fine. They thus avoid penalty points but pay the money to the "Greater Manchester casualty reduction partnership".Sounds a bit like the ol' deep South of the US of A."You speedin' thear Boy. That's 10 bucks or a night in the slammer"
I see Police-recorded crime figures have been stripped of the official 'gold standard' mark by the UK Statistics Authority amid mounting concern they are being 'fiddled' by police.So when they say crime's going down according to statistics, we now know those statistics are officially unreliable.
Following several previous posts about links between New Charter and Tameside police; on the front of the HQ of Parkway Green Housing Trust in Northenden there is a large GMP crest displayed on the front of the building, there is now a police post inside (Northenden's police station closed in 1995). Makes you wonder if there are other such examples.
Speaking of cameras police are to divert streched resources to search CCTV in Ashton to find Roy West on CCTV. Is this for violence, assault, terrorisism, rape, non of them much for serious, it's for a comment on the internet.
I always thought that CCTV was there to provide evidence to a crime.
If you are going to limit posts relevant to the article, then you need to to keep the bloc updated with different subjects. Other wise people will soon lose interest.
Had a close up look at this camera today and someone's done a proper job on it. Bearing in mind 'the cuts' (ZZZzzzz), it could be ages until a new camera's installed, maybe they won't bother.Well done to the perpetrator.
I'm sure the council can find money for such things, these cameras can pay for a lot of steak dinners. The cuts only affect things useful to normal people, like hospitals, schools and intact roads.
