    Angry Irritating Coppers with Speed Cameras!!

    Just on the way back from Birmingham down a long dual carrage way,totally clear without a car in sight and see 2 coppers with speed cameras on the bridge above. Got around the corner where the carrage way ends and there was the cop car waiting, so......Just got 6 points and will prob have to go to court and get a nice hefty fine....A*SE RAPPING B@STARDS!!

    I said to the copper "i bet you've made a fortune setting up camp there tonight"

    His reply was " your about the 150th person we've had so far here tonight, and we're not going untill 12:00!"

    I got caught about 10:00! So i should imagine there making a bloody fortune!

    So here's to the loss of my WAS clean license!
    No more Astra..........Now another German!

    I'll be honest, i was doing 69 on a 40 Dual Carrageway

    BUT

    In my defence as i said above (before i get slated by the i don't speed EVER people), it was totally clear and there was no one else on the road so no overtaking or undercutting hence the 69mph.

    Looks like the police will be driving around in bugati's instead of astra's in a few years time the money there making.

    Birmingham police were on a massive motoring offensive yesterday, I was working in various parts of Birmingham and we came across 2 speed traps, and 3 tax/mobile/seat belt check vans with the associated police bikes and cars.

    Looks like you were one of the unlucky ones of the day

    Unlucky, they do setup camp in sly places, but end of the day (unfortunatley) they are just doing their jobs, I wish they would concentrate on something else. like chav scum on street corners, but we are and always will be easy targets
