Wales is actually part of the British Isles, but not to worry.
What always strikes me as a little odd is this attitude that the Police should act in a 'sporting' fashion when trying to stop motorists speeding - as if it's some kind of game, and they're not playing by the rules unless they advertise their presence.
Speeding is illegal, and when you do it you not only commit an offence, you greatly increase your chance of killing someone, and/or yourself. The Police are there to catch law-breakers, and I don't see anyone suggesting that they should phone up known bank robbers and say "we'll be parked up outside Barclays in the high street next Friday, you've been warned".
All this guff about it being a pity the police don't concentrate on 'other crimes' is just that - guff. Speeding is the responsibility of traffic police; that's what they're there for.
I don`t know the exact number of deaths on Welsh roads and have no intention of researching it, but I do know that motorcyclists are killed in Welsh roads at then rate of one a month. That it a very high number for what is a relatively small rural country.
So if such so called devious measures bring the death toll down and make the roads that I have to drive on every day a little safer then I for one am all for it.
No slight on Wales I was just a bit miffed when I read the earlier post and replied a bit to quickly.
I fully share your views.
I spent nearly all my police service at various ranks within traffic policing and there weren't many weeks went by towards the end of that service when I used to get called out to supervise all of the fatal crashes in my area. I dread to think how many mutilated bodies I saw and, YES, in a very high proportion of those crashes the severity of the injuries was almost directly related to the speed of the vehicles involved and many of those speeds were in excess of the limit.
