THE Chief Constable whose use of speed cameras has sparked anger yesterday branded many speed limits "bonkers" and called for a reform of the system.Source: SPEED LIMITS ARE BONKERS (The Express (UK), 12/9/2004)
Richard Brunstrom of North Wales Police said too many drivers didn't accept cameras were a safety device. John Maxwell, chairman of the Institute of Advanced Motorists, told him his policies made drivers feel "targeted, vulnerable and alienated". He accused him of a "dismal failure to sell" the safety benefits.
Mr Brunstrom said his appeals to the Government for a review of speed limits had "fallen on deaf ears." He told the IAM: "All of us can think of a speed limit not 200 metres from our address that is barmy, utterly bonkers."
