France Drop Speed Camera Offenses For The Day
Today looks like being a good day for motorists in France. The French Police are so fed up with Francois Hollande that for today only they are not going to enforce the law when it comes to speeding motorists. I'm not quite sure how the French logic links the Prime Minister with speeding offences, but I am sure that it will provide a welcome respite for the beleagured motorists.
It also provides an excellent opportunity to see what impact this will have upon road safety. One assumes that if there is no increase in road traffic accidents then speed camera enforcement is not there to make the roads safer. But simply to generate Government revenue.
Ridiculous Delays In The Prosecution Of Road Traffic Cases
The Government has overseen a brutal series of cost cutting exercises within the criminal justice system. The sole purpose has been to save money at the expense of justice. Nowhere is this more evident than in road traffic cases.
I have just fixed a trial for a client facing prosecution for allegedly driving while impaired through drugs. The issues are straightforward and the trial will take no more than 3 hours. The earliest the court can hear the case is April 2014.
