Lancashire Telegraph: Residents speak out over 80mph boy racers

80mph? By the look of things, that motor's up there near light speed

We used to have speed indicators in our neck of the (back)woods until it was realised that the locals were delibertaly speeding past them to see who could show the highest speed. Now they just show the speed limit in flashing lights when cars speed past. The local authority and Police refused to have manned speed cameras for various reasons but suddenly changed their minds when a local resident began videoing the cars, showing the registration numbers, and then putting them on youtube! Numerous speeding tickets and a few court appearances, with increased insurance premiums for the car owners seemed to stop it. Wonderful what a bit ofpublicity will do.
