Chief constable attacks hypocritical speeders

11.44 | 9 August 2010 | | 1 comment

Julie Spence, the retiring head of Cambridgeshire Police, has claimed speeding motorists are hypocrites guilty of ‘anti-social behavior’ (Telegraph).

She said: “Speeding is middle-class anti-social behaviour. People think we should be able to get away with it.

“It all seems OK until something tragic happens, like their child dies because of a road traffic accident.”

“For too many it is the antics of drivers who refuse to accept that speed limit signs apply to them.

“Driving without care or consideration for other road users is probably among the worst kind of anti-social behaviour in its truest sense, because serious offenders can, and do, kill.”

    I think Julie Spence is absolutely right.

    So many think the law is for everybody else except them. They think they should be allowed to do what they like, when they like, how they like – so long as the results don’t come back and bite them where it is a bit uncomfortable.
