Terrible idea. It will make getting around even slower than it is already.

I am fortunate in that the great county of Hampshire, where I live, only has two fixed cameras, facing in both directions on the same stretch of road. The speed limit is 60mph. I frequently have to slow down behind people who drop down to 40 or sometimes even less on the approach to either of these cameras.

The current system of negative incentive works well enough, actually far too well, as it is. We don't want to turn it into an idiot's charter.

They didn't say how much the winners got. If it was like $30 bucks, this could work. If it was like $1.25, not so much.

I would think that the best idea would be to get rid of all those cameras and get the hell out of peoples lives.

Definitely. Speed cameras are the work of al Shaitān, in my opinion.
