Week One and the Speed Cameras

So there we are, week one at college has been completed! Today was the Child Protection section of preparation for placement, so it's just a matter of getting out into the parish now and doing what the Rector has in store for me over the next three months.

It was nice being able to come up the road on a Thursday - which will be happening every week this term, as Friday is our placement day. The weather was quite pleasant today too on the road north... Although I notice now that the journey up and down the A1 has been made slightly longer by the installation of 'average speed cameras' on either side of Newry - both towards Loughbrickland and the border. You really can't miss them, being yellow and arching over the road... so will anyone actually try to beat the system?

Makes you think though - are there actually cameras in the camera holders? Is it a computer analyses the data, or PSNI officers monitoring the cameras? How many people will be caught?

  2. Oh Gary, you've been chosen! Keep on putting in the effort - it does pay off, you know! LOL

    On a more serious note, I am the one who monitors those cameras - I'm watching you Father McMurray, always watching you!
