Any chance of a link, Dizzy?
I'm not sure I believe the word "Millions" on the y-axis.
"Safety cameras" my a*se! Cash dispensers, more like. Maybe "speed/safety cameras" will form part of the Quantatitive Easing strategy? They seem to be a nice little earner....
Love the way it is assumed that there must be a "link". However an update has been added. The figures are accurate.
These things are spreading like wildfire. Easy money for big government.
Dizzy surely the Y-axis cannot be correct. Did speed cameras really raise £95,000,000 million in 2007? That would be £95,000,000,000,000, that's £95 trillion. I know they are a money spinner but surely not that much of one!
No, they really aren't - you need to get rid of either "Millions" or each ",000,000".Since I don't want to be remembered as a drive-by pedant, may I also say that I appreciate your work and think your blog is good 8^)
Interesting. The funding arrangements changed after 2007. Did the partnerships stop getting any / so much money back?
A similar equation is at work in my local car-park; to prevent people passing on display tickets with unexpired time, a new state-of-the art ticket machine has been installed which requires your car reg. no.The cost of the machine, of course, infinitely outweighs the occasional 50p they missed when we used to hand over unexpired tickets.
The trick now Dizzy, is to reveal what percentage of ownership ACPO has in the companies providing speed cameras.
