    I'm happy with the campaign but don't think we should have to put up with the "No Excuses" aluminium signs they put up on the poles for the electronic speed monitors - e.g. on the Preston Road. Just more roadside clutter. Why not put up signs saying "eat less fat"? - it probably kills more people than speeding.
    How about "Work Harder" and "OBEY"?"

Bad drivers still have 'No Excuse'

First published in News

POLICE have revealed more excuses given by bad drivers caught by their 'No Excuses' campaign.

A young motorcyclist told officers on Chickerell Road that it was unfair of them to wait at the bottom of the hill because his bike goes faster downhill.

He was travelling at 42mph.

And a woman travelling at 44mph on Littlemoor Road told officers she was keeping up with the flow of traffic.

She changed her defence when police pointed out she was the only vehicle on the road at the time.

According to the latest figures, officers and safety cameras issued 957 tickets to bad drivers on Dorset roads in March 2012.
