Have you ever noticed how mobile speed traps hardly ever operate in the rain or in icy conditions?
They almost always only operate in good weather conditions.
It doesn’t take a genius to work out that the roads are MUCH more dangerous when it’s wet.
This is especially true when there has been a long dry spell, and then the rain comes.
Rubber from cars tyres gets embedded in to the road surface over time and when it rains, the water draws the oils in the rubber to the surface, making it like an ice rink for a while until the oils get washed away.
But how often do you see mobile camera vans out in the rain?
Seriously, think about it.
I have NEVER seen them!
I think what it indicates is that Mobile Speed Traps are more to do with generating revenue than they are to do with keeping us safe on the road.
But what do you think?
