Anyone see the report that the cops want to bail from speed cam operations? They want to hand it over to NZTA, which will be a cluster f... of biblical proportions. But should give plenty of opportunity to defend tickets.
Maybe the cops haven't been getting a big enough slice of the consolidated fund?
I also heard the greedy bloody local bodies want to get their hands on that filthy lucre too.

Interesting times. As the Chinese curse goes.

They have special sworn constables that do it here. It’s always been that way.

Really, they make 1/3 of an actual police office and less benefits. They’re just babysitting a camera and recording hits.

I don’t really think it will have any effect on trying to fight a ticket considering the camera and mail system do all the work.

Knowing NZTA as well as I do (unfortunately), they'll stuff up statutory requirements like calibration, correct positioning of mobile units, generally just make a hash of it.
On the bright side, there'll be some jobs coming up. Good pay, no real work.
