Here is one comment received on our press release: “As a former senior police traffic officer and ABD member I have grave reservations about Speed Awareness courses. In my view they ‘offer’ an expensive alternative to prosecution for excessive speeds which in the past would not trouble the guides to prosecutors, so low are the infringements.
So it is that the great and the good sit meekly through half a day’s instruction whilst persistent, dangerous speeders get away with it because the police service has given up overt traffic enforcement. Add to this the proliferation of new speed limits which do not meet long standing criteria and more speed cameras and you have the recipe for both a cash cow and a feeling of driver persecution. Road safety? I don’t think so…….. Malcolm Brockman“.
