Think I'm Kidding About The "Sandwich Cameras?"

You can read the news story for yourself.

Digital speed cameras which capture drivers smoking or eating at the wheel are being ntroduced nationwide in a new move to hammer motorists. Drivers will also face fines, bans and even jail for infringements such as driving without a seatbelt, using a hand-held mobile phone or overtaking across double white lines.

The hi-tech DVD cameras, which have instant playback, will also be used to provide photographic evidence against those eating sandwiches or rolling-up cigarettes at the wheel.

Keep this in mind as you demand the government protect you from cell phone users, text messengers and unauthorized baked goods. There is no reason to believe that the actions of your government goose steppers will be limited by common sense.
