Not one to miss rubbing shoulders with top people and ex's paid self promotion, was of course Edmund King See his interest in speeding profit here
Notwithstanding that, given King's and the AA's fiscal interest in speeding, thus morally disqualifying him from any reputable platform, he never the less was invited to peddle his wares at the TISPOL2015 conference.Survey of 30k drivers @AAPresident says 77% accept use of speed cameras for safety, 86% of drivers support speed awareness #TISPOLConf2015— TISPOL (@TISPOLorg) October 6, 2015
Of course we all should accept speed cameras as part of a toolbox so, that only 77% said they did in the AA poll, is already an indictment but the question should be 'do you accept the improper use of speed cameras?' I doubt if the answer would be 77% saying 'yes' to that?
Likewise 'do you support coercion to accept guilt?' or 'Do you support speed awareness courses that don't teach the truth?' Or 'Do you accept profiteering from speeding tickets?' Or 'Would you rather not get the ticket in the first place than be coerced onto a profitable dishonest course?' Then I am sure not many would have voted positively to that either.
What is a shock is that any police group think that road safety and prosecution policy should be based on the polling by profiteers and vested interests of the uninformed with no CV in the subject.
How much has this cost us? Why not FOI your police force to find out who attended and what was their total expenses and salary cost in doing so?
Here are some more Tweets on the Conference.

There's a lot of money from road safety grief. Pure exploitation. @TISPOLorg http://t.co/MQK0Xni4yl #TISPOLCon2015 https://t.co/EQKaVzaZUT— Drivers E. Midlands (@EastMidsDrivers) October 6, 2015
@AAPresident @TISPOLorg Right so no road safety in the world would have stopped it. Just like banning guns. http://t.co/MQK0Xni4yl— Drivers E. Midlands (@EastMidsDrivers) October 6, 2015
