    Has anyone noticed that the self-proclaimed safety advocate now ends his signature with "let's make
    speed cameras as unacceptable as drink-driving?"

    Yes -- he's been doing it for some time. I noticed it first because, with my dyslexia, I completely
    ignored the word 'cameras' and thought it very strange that he had suddenly seen the light.

    The guy is a fruit cake.

    It's interesting to see Paul is part of a double act in uk.tosspot.

    Paul argues that only a driver can decide what is dangerous and hence specific laws are too general
    and often inappropriate to the situation and hence should not be applied.

    Other poster's believe that drivers, no matter what damage they cause should only be held
    responsible if it can be shown beyond reasonable doubt that they have broken the law, anything else
    is just an honest mistake. Additionally if a driver is shown to have broken the law he should only
    be punished with regard to the law he has broken, e.g. someone who kills many people when 29mph over
    the limit should only be given 3 points and a few quid fine.

    If you put the two together :eek:(

    Actually it might be because that slogan exists "speeding as...." He's trying to be clever, but the
    fact remains that PS thinks speed cameras make everyone in to child killing automata. The same way
    as no one can keep their attention on driving long enough unless they go over 70 mph.

    To be fair that was his disciple Raymond. He suggested that at low speeds there was just too little
    happening for the brain to work properly.

    No. No. No. No. No. You haven't been paying attention at the back.

    The problem is that drivers have a fixed attention span (something between 1ns and 1us I guess) and
    therefore they have to drive VERY fast in order to get from A to B during that time and also spend
    less time on the road so they have less risk of an accident - It's a win-win situation.

    (The saddest thing is I think PS actually believes this)

    Regards,

    Tim.

    Yes - amazing how I manage not to crash and burn every time I drive, really, when you consider that
    I routinely fail to follow the Approved Safe Driving Practice of exceeding the speed limit.

    Smith, by contrast, apparently thinks people can't possibly look at their speedo without running
    over a child or something.

    Come on guys -- he's away for 10 days. Let's not be rude and talk behind his back. Let's enjoy the
    peace & quiet. We can then be rude to his face when the sad little git reappears :)

    Anyone who just can't live without the fix of a good argument can visit uk.tossers and troll there!!

    A bit like when received wisdom was that it would be impossible to breathe at 30 mph or some such
    rubbish, based on no facts whatsoever.

    Plus the main advantage of going fast is that you will have passed the scene of a potential
    collision before it can happen.

    A bit like if that train had gone faster it would have been past the point where Gary Hart parked
    his car trailer on the track before he parked it there.

    To be fair to P**l S***head, it's obviously correct that at low speeds there is too little happening
    for the brain to work properly. Evidence
    PS's posts themselves. Presumably even an expert like he posts from behind a stationary computer -
    not moving at all therefore brain not working at all.

    Well, I'd momentarily forgotten of course that PS is an *advanced* driver, so he probably can post
    and drive, because he will undoubtedly be able to correctly evaluate the dangers of the situation
    and compensate appropriately by speeding up a bit.

    I've been wondering what this 10 day disappearance is for.

    I suspect he won't tell us when he's released.

    I got a squeak out of him yesterday am.

    He'd like to push that - "Ten facts about global warming THEY don't want you to know" Includes:
    4: Without the Greenhouse Effect there would be no life on Earth.

    That is true. There has always been (or at least for millions of years) a certain amount of
    greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. Without this then all the heat needed by life would just bounce
    straight back out into space again.

    The thing that hasn't been mentioned is that right now the greenhouse effect *might* be heading out
    of control (but we don't really know for sure), which would be bad.

    Reminds me of the US auto industry's reaction to pollution controls in the 1960s. Deny, delay,
    dissemble.

    Climate scientists tend to differenate between "the greenhouse effect" (necessary for life on earth)
