A trial of average speed cameras in Walcote, a village in Leicestershire, is dishing out 100 penalties to fifty motorists per day.

A spokeswoman for Walcote parish council commented: "I am very surprised that so many people are speeding even with the average speed cameras there. But on the whole, the traffic through the village is significantly slower, and I have not heard of anyone from the village who is not pleased at the difference."

The year trial is part of a wider initiative that includes two other Leicestershire villages - Sharnford and Measham.

A local councillor said: "Of the 600,000 vehicles passing camera sites in Walcote, Sharnford and Measham over a time period from September 15 to October 15, 0.78 per cent of the vehicles have been issued with notices."

He added: "The trial is not about catching and fining motorists for speeding we want people to stick to the speed limits. We hope that these cameras will stop people from speeding, as it endangers the lives of other road users and pedestrians."

Recently, I haven't seen so many of those signs which say "xx accidents in x months". Maybe it would be a clever idea to have them saying "xx speeding tickets issued last month"? Let's face it, nobody seems to pay attention to signs saying "kill your speed, not our children".

Or maybe a sign saying "5,000 a day speeding tickets issued here".

Better off with a machine gun post on top of the speed camera Razz Laughing
Or maybe a three strikes and you're out or three months automatic ban

Less of the soft attitude and more zero tolerance perhaps
