Busted: UK Police cruisers caught speeding get tickets

No one outruns the law in Britain. At least, not ten percent of the speeding police in Avon and Somerset. The BBC, in a fit of governmental accountability, discovered that speeding officers set off Gatso cameras in those two counties 640 times last year. The great majority of those officers were on emergency calls, which means they're off the hook. But more than 50 officers weren't on emergency calls, and they'll be fined for their offense just the same as Joe Q. Public. Just goes to show, the limits of English propriety know no bounds. We'd like to see what would happen if our local force tried to ticket its own officers...
