If they catch the same people often enough, perhaps the loss of licences will cut the number of drivers coming into the city...

How hard is it to spot a police check if you are paying attention?

Depends how big the obstacle is that the police are hiding behind whilst aiming the camera at you!!

Here's a tip to spot the guy looking for offenders when they're at the Wolvercote roundabout. The copper wears a dark coat and black cap often is touching his ear to activate his ear piece. He stands between Sunderland Avenue and Five Mile Drive.
If you have a CB radio, use Ch5; You will hear Earthline lorry drivers warning each other of the checks.

Right, that's it, I'm going to randomly stand around wearing a dark coat, black cap and touching my ear now.

Interesting to note that Oxford has a considerable amount of crime (simple to prove this: Read this paper or live there for a few years), yet the council and police are more interested on robbing motorists who are not really going that fast (38mph on St. Giles is NOT fast, sorry), to pay their salaries. Left wing entities are always robbing the successful. (Yup, not wearing a seat belt is silly, but only affects you, and is very rare. Willing to bet out of those 51 motorists, very few were not wearing their seat belts.)

How about the police walking around the town centre and other streets and going after bike thieves or shoplifters hmm?

Oxford is a pretty city with a toxic underbelly, and that underbelly is the council.

name and shame, justice has to be seen, or this article could be considered a scare mongering exercise to prevent speeding.

One of the cops pulled me over along this road, walked up to the car, and with that classic patronizing smirk, asked: "Runway too short then sir?"

To which I replied, "I'm late for work."

To which he asked, "What do you do?"

"I'm a rectum stretcher," I responded.

The copper was surprised and confused. "A what? A rectum stretcher?? And just what does a rectum stretcher do?"

"Well," I said, "I start by inserting one finger, then I work my way up to two fingers, then three, then four, then with my whole hand in, work side to side until I can get both hands in, and then I slowly but surely stretch the hole, until it's about 6 feet."

Then the copper asked questioningly and cautiously, "And just what do you do with a six-foot arsehole?"

To which I politely replied, "You give him a radar gun and tell him to go hide somewhere along St Giles."

Speeding ticket: £105.00
Court costs: £45
Look on copper's face: Priceless
