Hooray! Camera can now take photos

or probably not.

Driving along Cannock Road in Burntwood (at about 26 mph) I noticed the leaves had gone from in front of what is Speed Camera autumnsupposed to be a safety camera installed to deter speeding motorists in Burntwood.  Well credit where it is due, I thought,  when I get back I must thank the Police and Crime Commissioner and/or Lichfield District Council’s Parks dept.

On the return journey (27 mph) it was clear they had nothing to do with it!  It was Mother Nature that had provided a clear view for the camera.  Neither Staffordshire’s Tory Police and Crime Commissioner or the Tory District Council have done anything to make Burntwood’s Road safer.

If this is one of the cameras on 3000 miles of roads (excluding Stoke On Trent) that is switched on then it’s only going to work between November and March or April each year!
