Oh for god sake.

Plastic Frigging Traffic Cops


What a joke.

How can you give these useless cardboard cops something to do. They stand by and watch a child drown. They watch a young guy get beaten senseless (down the road from where I work) and they do nothing. And now they are community support traffic cops.

They better not make this nationwide.


Rant over

Re: Oh for god sake.

Oh god, i hope they dont.

The've just put up a sign near me that tells you what speed your doing but i find it just encourages people to see how fast they can do thru it It doesnt read anything over 60mph

I still think there put bl00dy average speed cameras on all motor ways soon.

Re: Oh for god sake.

Its got to be a joke, they have no powers to do anything with regards crime but they can now harass motorists, I witnessed 6 Kids playing in a truck next to our depot last Saturday, walking away was a community support officer, i stopped and asked him why he had not moved the kids from the back of the lorry and he replied " i have asked them to move and they wont so i will just have to wait for a police unit to deal with it " Sick Sick Sick stupid country

Re: Oh for god sake.

On one of the roads here, they have a massive sign that displays your registration whenever you approach it. Well up on the side of a building, how is that?:

Re: Oh for god sake.

If the report is true and they are only going to be used outside schools and in 30 zones, then I don't have a problem with it - the speed some people drive through my village and past the school is appalling. If we started to see it migrate to A-roads and motorways though, then I would be against it as unnecessary.

Re: Oh for god sake.

I don't have an issue if it is "just" outside schools. But it isnt clear if they can actually hand out penalty points?

Re: Oh for god sake.

As I have always said the only real criminals in the eyes of the law are Motorists, If ever you get a chance pop down to the public gallery of your local court, Drug dealers, Muggers , shoplifters you name it are let off without as much as a fine, the law is an Ass and Britain is becoming the Ass of the world....
