M4 speed camera protest planned- Sat 30th April

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by imported_Yaseen, Apr 21, 2005.

  1. A motorists' pressure group, angered by the new M4 speed cameras, is planning a slow-drive protest along the motorway.
    M4 Protest hopes the action will "show that safe driving is too complex to be measured in miles per hour".

    Spokesman, Robin Summerhill said: "After £700m of fines, road deaths are going up, yet the greedy camera partnerships simply keep expanding."

    The protest is due to take place along the Wiltshire stretch of the motorway

    Drivers and motorcyclists will be gathering at 10am on Saturday 30th
    April 2005 at two motorway service stations - one in the east of
    Wiltshire and one in the west.

    People wanting to join the protest
    should visit www.m4protest.org for news or information about how to
    join in.

    Robin continues: " We've been running for less than 24 hours and
    already the response is amazing. I hope drivers and riders will turn
    out in big numbers on the day. Speed cameras are an issue that
    affects road users everywhere. Let's hope that the politicians get the
    message - we're not going to stand for it any more."
