A new slow camera on the streets of Eastbourne

Motorists are to be confronted by slow cameras on UK roads after it was announced that the government intends to expand a controversial pilot scheme in Woking to the rest of the country.

A report announced on Monday by Transport Minister John Spellar hailed the use of slow cameras a "success" with the number of people seriously annoyed or frustrated in tailbacks falling by 37' around the slow camera sites.

Announcing the extension of the pilot scheme Mr Spellar said: "Slowcoaches are a menace on Britain's roads, particularly on Sundays. These new cameras will catch anyone slowing under the speed limit of 2 mph on urban roads and 10 mph on motorways".

The slow cameras are sophisticated pieces of equipment. A large metal casing houses a small artist at an easel who will do a oil-painting of the offender's number plate as they crawl by.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
