Is photo radar a good thing?
The way I see it is that it frees up police resources to fight real crime. Plus they bring the government lots of money. All you have to do to not get a ticket is to not speed. I guess you could keep the license plate flipped up too.
Their flaw is that they only get you for speeding. They won't ticket you for driving without a license, or insurance or if youre drunk.
Apparently they have them everywhere in England and people there just don't speed in town.
