News. Govt reprioritises traffic policing...31 July 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000014

The scene shows a lovely summer's day with fluffy clouds in the sky and a little Morris Minor trundling along a country road. It has just passed a huge sign which originally read 'IF YOU DRINK AND DRIVE YOU'RE A BLOODY IDIOT!' but recently the words 'DRINK' and 'IDIOT' have been crossed out and replaced with the words 'SPEED' and 'GOLDMINE' so that the sign now reads 'IF YOU SPEED YOU ARE A BLOODY GOLDMINE!' Refers to the notion that Land transport is catching as many speeding drivers as possible in order to fill up their coffers with speeding fines.
