Speed cameras target M4 drivers

More revenue raising from New Labour as speed cameras target M4 drivers. This is not about safety (or should that be security? That's the excuse New Labour uses for everything else) as motorways are the safest roads in the country and this section of road is practically roman in it's straitness. So it is simply another stealth tax, a way of raising revenue. With the added bonus that it adds points to your licence for not doing anything dangerous which will mean higher insurance costs and could lead to the loss of your driving licence and therefore most likely livelihood, public transport being the joke that it is. Everybody knows that people speed on motorways the average is probably 80mph or more, society has already decided that this is accepted behaviour. Perhaps the law should catch up, rather than using it as an excuse to raise more stealth taxes.
