Shocking, I tell you!


Last week, Thames Valley Safer Roads Partnership said a roadside camera on the A44 in Woodstock had seen an 18.3 per cent increase in speed offences since the switch-off compared to the average number caught this year.

At the same time a radar inside a second camera in Watlington Road, Cowley, registered an 88 per cent rise in offences when compared with figures in 2008 and 2009.

The partnership said the figures for 2010 were not available, as the camera had been switched off due to roadworks.

When the Oxford Mail requested 2008-9 data for the Woodstock camera – to make an equal comparison to the Watlington Road camera – the partnership said the figures were not readily to hand.

Now, the Oxford Mail having obtained the information, the figures actually show speed offences fell by four per cent when comparing the figures since the switch-off to offences in 2008-9.

The fucking police and the fucking scamera operators keep trumpeting all these fucking claims about how much scameras save lives and what utter fucking bastards motorists are.

Well, all I can say is: "Fuck off and die painfully, you lying cunts!"

I couldn't agree more, although I'd be a bit less moderate in my language than that. They should all fuck off, leave us alone and catch criminals. But that would be too much like hard work.

The criminal clean-up rate in this country is a scandal and the forces of law and order are a black joke.

Yes you see less "skinheads" hiding in vans and loading cameras at the side of the road now.
Then the other type of "skinhead" ,the clamper ,less of them too.

Ive just bought a penis extension on the strength of Gatsos being binned.
Might buy one of those detectors just to be safe.

Oh! if I get stopped I will say "Obo said it was ok"

I also note that the survey didn't address whether accidents went up, down or stayed the same. Safety is not what these camera are for.


Joe Public said...

Conspicuous by its absence, is any claim that accidents in the vicinity have increased.

Absolute proof that the cameras were for taxation & not for safety.

Oh very funny....NOT!! These are the bastards who want to track our every move and build the worlds largest database of personal information, yet they can't produce a simple list of figures???

Didn't want to, more like. And now we can see why...

If the camera was switched off how the fuck do they know? And if they DO know, then there's no need for the fucking camera.

It boils my piss to think anyone with even the remotest spark of intelligence would believe this garbage for even a split second.

Barring the rantings of Sir Norman of Psycho, the only occasions we hear truth from policemen are now limited to:

"We demand more guns/tasers/supercars/improved pay/pensions/overtime/perks/time off"

(delete as appropriate)

Err, aren't we meant to respect the police? Strange tactics they seem to be employing to get us there.

Where's the accountability? The charges of abuse of public office? What about the so-called officers of the crown sworn under oath caught lying to the public?

Anyone been sacked? No?

All credit to the Oxford Rag for exposing the truth... its about time the police were dealt with because they've obviously lost the plot.
