Good evening,

Looks like we'll all be buying a copy of the DAILY MAIL tomorrow. The FRONT PAGE has the headline "Great Speed Gun Scandal" - as shown just now on the ITV News review of tomorrows papers.

Paper review on News 24 just now.  The newsreader gave a summary which went something like "thousands of drivers, including me, have been caught"

Anything do do with "our" investigations?  Apparently there was a video on BBC Look East tonight, just trying to download it so haven't looked yet:

http://www.safespeed.org.uk/forum/viewtopi...pic.php?p=48328

edit: Looks very interesting, he is recorded at 84 JUST BEFORE overtaking a lorry and afterwards is at 20mph less.  The realvideo is quite blocky but it doesn't seem possible to perform such a manoeuvre. If I can read the distances I will work out the average speed between the readings.

Notice the Error03 reading?

AIUI, Error03 means the operator has an unstable reading due to poor aim or panning off of target.  Wonder why the CPS dropped it?  :roll:

You absolutely MUST buy, beg, borrow or steal a copy of the Daily Mail today, talk about hilarious.

I'm sad and went to the local early rag shop (the garage) at 5am for mine  :shock:

Frank must be looking at leaving the country  :shock: It's not very complimentary...  :lol:

Hi guys,

Can somebody get me a copy of this video. I have some contacts in the BBC who should be able to get it but just in case. The higher quality the better. We need to look at it.

Thanks.

I love the photo's, nice big calibration sticker.

If anyone can't be bothered to look up Teletraffic's address, its there on the back of the gun.

Don't forget to address any supportive letters "Dear Millionaire Frank Garrard"

Perhaps his apparent millionaire status will not be an affliction that troubles him for too much longer.

This can't be true. I'm sure that Garrett's magic lasers know that the only direction they are permitted to bounce is straight back to the LTI.  :lol:  :lol:

Common sense and a GCSE level understanding of physics should be sufficient to have these items consigned to the bin.  I find it difficult to comprehend how (presumably|allegedly|supposedly) educated people can ever have arrived at the conclusion that these things were ever going to stand up to scrutiny.

Lord, give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to burn the gatso's I chop down

Fraudulent appeals companies found - 7.
Fraudulent appeals companies closed down - 6.
Number of directors caught wrongfully trading - 8.
Number of Shadow Directors charged and convicted - 1.

Don't forget that there are a lot of armchair lawyers everywhere on the internet. People who will actually come to court with you are few and far between.
