Million-Pound Yorkshire Pudding, Er, Speed Camera

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

A speed camera in Ferrybridge, Yorkshire has pulled down over a million pounds in fines over eighteen months, and the Brit-types are calling foul, saying the eye of Big Brother is obviously doing nothing to deter speeding, and is instead all about revenue generation. We've gone on record before as saying that we don't like speed cameras; we'd rather have a cop out there on a bike or in a car; at least that seems more honest to us. Ah, for the good old days of pacing. (And yes, we have been nailed that way — honestly twice, and a couple of other times simply because we think they wanted to suss us out and just generally wanted to be dicks to a longhair in an El Camino.
