France Drop Speed Camera Offenses For The Day

Today looks like being a good day for motorists in France. The French Police are so fed up with Francois Hollande that for today only they are not going to enforce the law when it comes to speeding motorists. I'm not quite sure how the French logic links the Prime Minister with speeding offences, but I am sure that it will provide a welcome respite for the beleagured motorists.

It also provides an excellent opportunity to see what impact this will have upon road safety. One assumes that if there is no increase in road traffic accidents then speed camera enforcement is not there to make the roads safer. But simply to generate Government revenue.
