Just when the UK government are switching off our speed cameras, the Irish are rolling out a new network. Do the Irish know something we don't ?
Irish Minister for Transport Noel Dempsey said: "The purpose of these new safety cameras is simple: to save lives and prevent serious injuries on our roads. No more, no less.
"Excessive speed is still the top killer on Irish roads. These new cameras will help the gardai in their efforts to make our roads safer."
It really is that simple. How many people have to die before the Coalition understands?
