    I had to go through to George for a quick wedding on Saturday. The roads were free-flowing and mostly empty. Three cameras on the way out and 3 on Sunday morning when we came back. Speedcops sitting in unmarked vehicles, not wearing uniforms and 2m in front of the 120 boards. I still can't see how this contributes in any way to safer roads, but hey, who am I to disagree...

    I was never caught, though. Thanks to all the guys who flashed! Appreciate it!
