Swindon Bans Speed Cameras, Maybe

by | 15th, July 2008

FERGUS Shanahan says, “Well done Swindon Borough Council, which is axing all its speed cameras because they are, in its words, ‘a blatant tax on the motorist’.”

A few pages on and the Sun is less certain:

“A town may scrap speed cameras on its roads… The Conservative-run council is considering withdrawing from the Wiltshire and Swindon Partnership next year” – a group that may need renaming.

Might Shanahan’s congratulation be a touch premature, but just in time for his weekly column?
