UK Indoctrinates Kids with Speed Camera Calendar
A UK speed camera partnership starts teaching the benefits of speed cameras to children as early as sixth grade.

Speed camera calendar
Sixth grade students in the UK may not be anywhere near old enough to drive, but they're old enough to learn that speed cameras are there to benefit them. That's what the Kent and Medway Speed Camera Partnership has been teaching students at seven local schools. The program included a contest where thirteen suitable entries were used to create a calendar with pro-camera messages and artwork rendered in crayon. The calendar is being offered at no cost to residents.

None of the winning 2006 entries mention that Kent's cameras dispensed 82,906 citations worth £4.9 million (US $8.6 million) last year, and cameras nationwide generated £700 million (US $1.3 billion) in revenue. Another speed camera partnership in Humberside recently found in its own annual survey found that 63 percent of residents believe speed cameras are "an easy way to make money."
