Default EU and Speed Camera's The Verdict is IN

http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/Ne...7/June/june25-

Interesting argument with a sad conclusion, plead guilty it's cheaper.

Default Thanks

I didn't see where the video went. The verdict came over the phone from a court in another country.

What did anyone expect? The EU is a govt that consists of unelected officials, similar to the old Soviet Union's Politburo. Not much chance that the EU's courts are going to take a chance on actions that might reduce their own pay and benefits.

It's for their own good anyhow.

EU govt cosists of unelected officials? Of course they have been elected. If you mean “not elected by popular vote” the same applies to US govt officials. I mean what's the logic here?

Lets get the facts about speed cameras straight:

1) speed cameras typically snap the photo from the front
2) motorbike has the plate in the back
3) er...
4) that’s it

They started putting red light cameras and school zone cameras around here. Personally I think it's a good idea and predictably one of the first ones to get caught was the Mayors wife speeding in a school zone. Red light runners are a real problem here so I have no problem with mailing them a $100. fine, it may be my ass they run over next.

But you won't think it's funny when the bureaucrats can't make out the license plate and send the ticket to you instead because you have the same make and model of car.
