A “Speed Reduction Officer” (are you laughing already?) in North Wales has said that he wants to “dispel some myths” about mobile speed traps…
Garath Thomas is one of those people — hated by many — who sit inside the back of a van, aiming a gun at approaching drivers.
Of course it’s a speed gun he’s holding rather than an AK47, but the intention is broadly similar; to control and extort his targets!
Mr Thomas works for GoSafe, which is essentially a ‘warm and cuddly’ marketing division of the Police in Wales.
He claimed that:
“Go Safe prefers to educate drivers rather than punish them with fines and penalty points.”
The hilarious (or scary?) thing is that I’m sure Mr Thomas actually believes the nonsense he is spouting…
I’d love to know what he thinks qualifies him as an expert who has the authority to “educate” us mere mortals!
The arrogance of these Government departments — which are allegedly there to help us when we need them — never ceases to amaze me…
Seeking to justify his (in my opinion delusional) World view, he said:
“Even if I parked my van and went for a walk somewhere, it would deter people speeding right away.”
Well, Mr Thomas… If that’s the case, then why don’t you do just that?
I think the answer is pretty clear… If you and other “Speed Reduction Officers” went out to catch criminals rather than extorting drivers, you would soon find yourself out of a job because there would be no money to pay you!
I implore people like Mr Thomas to open their eyes and see the damage they are doing to the very people they claim to be protecting…
All the best,
P.S. I’m not suggesting that Mr Thomas or any other speed camera operator is inherently “evil”, or a bad person — even though they do a very bad thing in my opinion, by persecuting and extorting Motorists.
I suggest instead that they have likely been conditioned throughout their life to believe people are like cattle, who need to be controlled and guided to the nth degree…
If you find yourself in agreement with the point I’m making here, you might find the interview I did recently with Jeff Berwick interesting. It’s not for everyone but it will certainly make you think :-)
