What a hypocrite

I'm sure peeps have seen this on the news, but for those who haven't, this guy wants speed cameras to be hidden.  yikes

Re: What a hypocrite

Was he not also the Chief Constable that advocates Zero Tolerance on speeders, and encourages his own officers to report anyone exceeding the limit no matter how small?

30mph over the speed limit should result in a ban, according to recommended sentencing, so /will be interesting to see if he is.

As he holds the position he does, IMHO, he should be banned, maximum fined, and lose his position within the federation, but I suspect he will get off with nothing more than a minor slapped wrist, citing his "advanced driving skills" as mitigating circumstances which the magistrates will accept, with due accord.

This alleged offence took place back in May, so why has it taken CPS so long to give notice of intended prosecution?

The guy has brought his federation into disrepute. A complete disgrace.

Re: What a hypocrite

I hope he gets disqualified but somehow I doubt it! I agree that speed limits should take into account the time of day-going 40 in a 30 in the early hours is unlikely to kill any children- but 90 on an A road is a bit excessive. It doesn't say what time of day he was caught and although he is probably very highly trained in driving technique, he has to take into account the idiot he comes across at the next corner.

He should set an example, after all, we try to keep the speed down when we are driving for ourselves as we know that if we dont we could lose our livelihood. Ban him- he who lives by the sword dies by the sword!

Re: What a hypocrite

Don't be so horrible you lot, he was probably testing it out. Its part of the job description you know, how are the authorities able to assess risk if their officiating officers are not allowed to abuse the situation.

Now when a member of the public gets caught doing something similar he can stand up and say ''you really shouldn't be doing that because its dangerous'', and he can say it with true ''conviction'' because he knows doesn't he?. Ev :evil:

Re: What a hypocrite

Hi
How ironic that he should be caught in the area of the other zero tolerance Chief Constable.
He would be hard put to use the "testing the vehicle" defence, he was on holiday.

Re: What a hypocrite

As Dimmy said why has it taken so long, were they hoping it would go away?

Anyone else would have had to get a bus pass and a non driving job by now.
