Just spotted this article on the Beeb's site regarding cameras between J43 and J44 of the M6 in Cumbria being ignored and made me think. There are several Monitron cameras on that stretch on the cubmission map.

Question Are drivers now ignoring "normal" cameras on motorways because we are so used to Specs zones being set up around short-term roadworks?

Question Do drivers ignore the speed limits in general on motorways in this part of the country? (I ask this as it's less populated so I expect there's less traffic on the road than down here in the M6 traffic jams around Brum with loads of Specs zones).

Nothing in the article tries to go into WHY this is the case and just blames the drivers for ignoring the signs. The HA can't understand why it's happening and the anti-camera brigade argue about the money making without giving any alternatives for workforce safety.
