regarding the camera/revenue generating argument:
If you're (in a car) caught by a RL camera (or god forbid a real Police man!) for jumping a red light what is the penalty?
Is it a fine *and* points or just a fine?
If the penalty was automatic points and no fine then I guess it would be more likely to have the desired effect and would destroy the money making argument?
ie: get caught doing it, get points, keep doing it and get too many points, not allowed to drive.
Would that not be a better deterrent than fines and prove that it's definitely a safety thing and not about making money?
Or am I way off the mark?
