Yes, there is an inherent fault here – the drivers!

Have your say

While I have no understanding of Mr Armour’s particular case, I have to agree with his comment: “More than 3,000 people have been caught. There’s an inherent fault here”. However, I’m guessing I have a different interpretation of that fault.

Correct me if I’m wrong…

As I understand it, the speed limit was reduced and indicated with new signs.

Traffic calming measures were also introduced as well as signs warning of a speed camera; a camera painted florescent yellow. Then there was a six-month period of grace before the camera was activated.

Given all this, isn’t the inherent fault likely to be that a large number of drivers don’t pay sufficient attention when at the wheel; on autopilot rather than focusing on the road?

Speed alone doesn’t kill but incompetent driving does. Those caught by this camera do appear to be lacking some pretty basic observational skills.

Maybe they should also be charged with driving without due care and attention.
