Presentation: Why we are wasting our time with speed enforcement?
A controversial but experience-driven explanation of how and why we are wasting time, effort, and lives with speed-enforcement approaches.
This talk uses the experience from a series of attempts to get police to engage with a free, resource-negative, community-led and funded approach to reduce speeding. It looks at the chasm in attitudes between the police and the community they protect, and uses independent results to show how driver behaviour is the key to reducing fatalities from speeding, but how this is hindered while police enforcement apathy remains.
The technology is there but the desire is simply not. Instead, the talk presents the successes of district, local, and parish councils in owning the issue and changing driver behaviour directly.
