So how would the non-t.i.c part be achieved?


Nope. You've lost me. Perhaps something a little less cryptic might get the sort of response you are looking for?

Re: Smart Motorways

AIUI, the cameras in use on "smart" motorways are HADECS3. Highways Agency Digital Enforcement Camera System 3. They are usually grey and alongside the gantries. AFAIK, they are "always on" but I do not know exactly what enforcement they provide or to what tolerance. This may hel...

Re: Smart Motorways

Remove traffic by removing drivers who don’t deserve their licence.

Re: Smart Motorways

I think I remember figures from Highways England on Radio4 recently and they showed that the accident rate on "smart" motorways is higher than on traditional variety ?

I think they are a fantastically expensive solution looking for a problem.

Re: Proposal for new driving test regulations post initial test...

I am quite sure that there was a recent post from Sussex RPU or an article in a local rag that said they would be administering roadside eyesight checks for all vehicles that they had cause to stop and a failure to read a licence plate at 20m would result in on-the-spot licence revocation via DVLA. ...

Re: Proposal for new driving test regulations post initial test...

The best thing IMO would be to make drivers have periodic eye tests. I honestly believe that a lot of problems on the roads are caused by poor eyesight rather than deliberate bad behaviour. In Spain every driver over the age of 40 must have this test every five years and their licence is valid for ...

Re: Change in police pursuit policy?

I think the question stands. Given the pressure on police budgets, even as a "message" it is very expensive and is very likely to result in even fewer RPU cars on the road. I understand and accept fully that the miscreants need to understand they will no longer get a free pass but, let's b...
