Letter: Don’t whinge if you get caught speeding
LETTERS: RE: The "Our Say" column (Daily, August 29) you wrote about the speeding problem which is so prevalent on the Coast.
I, too, am amazed at the number of drivers who are caught speeding and then complain about the fine they receive. The usual whinge is that "it's just revenue raising". If this was true the police would have a radar camera near the Dusty Rhodes bridge on Petrie Creek Rd, Diddillibah.
The national debt could be paid off inside six months.
Those drivers who conform to the 60kmh speed limit there are invariably tailgated by others.
A common complaint of the leadfoot brigade is that keeping an eye on the speedo detracts from their concentration on the roads.
Surely, if checking your speedo while driving is to be considered multi-tasking, it's debatable whether you're safe to be on the road at all.
