    Hidden 3/4 of the way down was a speed camera. Oops.

    But if I hadn't been riding so fast earlier to pull away from the GSXR, I'd have been racing him at 150+ down there

    Do you mean pillars or pillows, one can never quite be sure with your standard of literacy.

    Every site was initially put forward because of concerns by the local residents. Districts were told to put forward 7 or 8 sites and every single district put forward at least a dozen. Each District ended up with 6 each. They were called Community Concern Speed Enforcement Sites. Whilst I cannot speak for other Councils, in Lancashire the point was to satisfy local residents who didn't like cuddly wuddly beary beary boos treating their local areas like race tracks.

    Nobody's pockets got lined.

    I have only ever been caught on the M25 by an unmarked car .... so yeah i still speed on that road

    Been lucky a few times and also avoided a few by recognising stuff ahead not looking right or rolling off "just in case"

    Surely "gold pillars for their houses" tells you it's satire?

    I slow down on the roads I know have speed cameras even though I've never been caught by them...

    I definitely wanked hard enough at school that's true, and Saga troll is just trolling again.
