Recent EU-wide road safety statistics have shown that for the second year in a row, the number of fatalities on European roads has not improved, and meeting the target of halving the number of road deaths by 2020 is becoming increasingly challenging

Comment: so much for "speed kills". "Policing for profit" is becoming more apparent.

 Speed or Greed.

I once read that Bill Gates said, “Treatment without prevention is simply unsustainable.” While I imagine he was talking about disease, this statement rings true across a broad spectrum of topics, including road safety. Speed traps are not prevention, they are (money) traps. Indeed they are not a cure either, but that's a different thread.
