Are law enforcement cameras an invasion of privacy?

I think that speed enforcement cameras can be distracting. Drivers tend to concentrate more on the speedo than they do on the road ahead as they don't want to get caught speeding. Driving abroad where there aren't so many cameras is far more relaxing - and I still don't go blasting around the place just because there are no cameras. I drive to the road and the conditions

I'd be much happier if motorway speed limits were increased though, and less of those not-so-smart motorway camera zones. I've been in the control centres for those, and it's all very interesting, but so frustrating when traffic appears to be very light and the signs show 40mph with cameras active due to congestion!!!!!

Cameras in 30mph areas are certainly a very good safety tool - as long as drivers still remember to watch the road

I think that's they key word 'watching the road' and being aware of your surroundings....speed cameras tend to distract drivers and lead to harsh braking at the last moment.

Could say the same for dashcam videos we see all the time on YouTube.

 

But I don't think you can have any expectation of privacy while you're in a public place, can you? Everybody's got a camera phone, so if you do something silly you're gonna be internet famous anyway 😄
