Speeding points - why we feel picked on (I live in BH)

In a top ten table of motorists to receive at least one speeding conviction in the past five years, Bournemouth and Poole appeared an astonishing four times - more than any UK area.

Yeah! but along with next door Essex, have some of the sneakiest (for out-of-sight hiding) traffic police, I've seen anywhere...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I am under the opinion that under current usage, the camera, or operator must be visible  (I live in Essex).
We even get a list in the local papers each week where they are going to check, and it is published on the net.  http://www.drivingcasualtiesdown.org/cameras/cameras.php
