Open letter to Institute of Advanced Motorists
Why is IAM promoting speed cameras?
'Speeding' That is to go above an arbitrary and unscientific number on a pole cannot cause an accident. Too fast does, both above or below the limit but no camera can see that.
Does IAM agree with that statement and that most drivers or people answering its recent poll would not know that?
Since when was life and death road safety a non expert consensus matter? Or indeed how many of those polled were driving experts?
Given that without speed/motion we would all die, is 'speed kills' a false soundbite which may have influenced your poll?
