due to my job and the hours i work i am often driving down deserted roads with not a soul in sight and yet the bloody cameras are still there!!.. i admit that i often speed in order to complete my round and i slow down near cameras to protect my licence.
just ask yourself which option is best

1..a truck driver exceeding the speed limit but fully focused on traffic/pedestrians and driving with consideration.

2.. a truck driver not watching the road ahead but looking down at his speedo to ensure he's not speeding and consequently not driving with due care and attention.

give me a bobby in a panda anyday.(showing my age now )

last thought on this of december my truck ( and all others around the country) will be limited to 55mph thanks to a new law just passed. if the goverment are SO concerned that speed kills why not limit all cars to no more than 70mph??
