Be Wiser Insurance

A three-month anti-speed programme will not be extended indefinitely by officials in Staffordshire - much to the disappointment of local people, it has been reported.

The Burton Mail has stated that residents in Linton and Coton were given speed guns clocked thousands of motorists breaking the law as part of the scheme.

It may be that those who are convicted in such a manner find that they cannot pick up a cheap car insurance deal in the future, as cover firms could consider them dangerous and increase costs.

Andy Hasell, Parish council chairman, is disappointed that the scheme will not continue.

He said: "It is a bit of an insult really. Now there are just accidents waiting to happen."

This comes as the Lancashire Evening Post has reported that drivers in the area paid £1.7 million for speed awareness classes between 2005 and 2006.
