    “Some protesters feel speed cameras are solely a revenue-generating measure which takes money from the poor.”

    But of course they are....the speed camera network has absolutely nothing to do with safety, speeding cars ...or accidents.

    But I'm baffled ....do only the “poor” speed ?....must be because someone rich is holding a gun to their heads and telling them to ‘step on the gas’…

    Irony of it is that the funds to fix the system will come from the pockets of many of these ‘yellow vest’ vandals, which will be the reason for further protests....not to mention the protests when a family member of one of these 'vandals' is killed by a speeding car…due to the lack of speed cameras....
    Some people never learn...
