Ja well – no fine.
At a website called www.icseftonandwestlancs.co.uk (hey don’t laugh, it must be difficult these days to get a good web address in Britain!) I found their Health and Safety fears over Signs article.
Now apparently the local bobbies have been told to stop putting up and taking down the mobile speed indicator device (SPID) around the village in case they get injured.
Now this is all good and well, but what do you think is this SPID they talk about.
According to the article this SPID-thing is moved every day around the village to create that “surprise factor”. Now don’t be surprised, but the £3,000 gadget works by smiling at motorists when they were doing the limit, but frowns when they are breaking it.
Ja well – no (traffic) fine when I’m smiling!
I can’t stop smiling. Will it work in Africa?
