Thanks to Freemania for this post.
Which part of this do right-wing Tories fail to understand? Accidents happen on the roads, sometimes through irresponsible driving, sometimes through drunkenness, sometimes through road rage and the like. Now the reason speed cameras are there is because one person's selfishness on the road can lead to another person's death, but hey let's not spoil the said driver's liberty.
But then perhaps Mike Penning has a point, although I doubt he would explain it to the families of those who have been killed by people speeding on the motorway! Incidentally it was a bit of a bad time to mention such viewpoints.
