THERE are two things that are unsurprising about your report that the speed cameras on Maybray King Way are the most prolific in the country.

First, on the side approaching the city, it is a dual carriageway with no pavement, bearing all the characteristics of a 50mph road, let alone 40mph, and as you say in your editorial, very poor signage.

It follows a gentle curve into the speed trap that awaits the unsuspecting driver. No wonder tens of thousands have been caught.

The other unsurprising thing is the attitude of the city council and our MP.

We are told the limit is okay because the street lights are the required distance apart and that people know about these cameras. The reality is that many who have been caught out are visitors to the city and, of course, there is too much cash to be raised to consider a fair and reasonable approach.
