I love people who speed. It’s entirely discretionary and yet they choose to provide millions of dollars a year to the community to fund schools, hospitals, and the sprawling semi-competent ACT Public Service.
The Canberra Times reports that better placement of speed cameras has given the generous leadfoots even greater opportunities to contribute.
- THE TOTAL speed camera revenue in the ACT has jumped 45 per cent in a year to $14.5 million with the addition of lucrative new speeding hot spots.
A stretch of the Monaro Highway at Hume is proving to be a profitable speed trap for the ACT Government with two new speed cameras there alone generating $3million in fines last financial year.
So where else could these marvellous cash cows be usefully deployed?
