A TEMPORARY speed camera in Hanworth has been named as Britain's highest-grossing – bringing in fines of almost £1m in just six months.
16,213 motorists – which equates to more than 100 a day – were caught breaking the temporary 30mph restriction imposed on the A316 Country Way between June and November last year.
The road usually has a 50mph limit but average speed cameras were operating during roadworks at the site to improve signage, street lighting and resurface the road.
The 30mph restriction has been criticised by motorists who say the limit was too drastic a slowdown just a few hundred metres after coming off the busy 70mph M3 motorway.
Write to your local MP and ask him to put the fine on his expenses...
