Stephen Corby’s insightful article about WA’s over-zealous cops (The Lucky Licence Country, June) struck a chord with me, as I has a similar experience some years ago.

Fortunately, though, here in the West we are still allowed to possess and use radar detectors, and I have to say mine is the best investment I have made in my 30 years of living here!

It certainly evens the odds more than somewhat against the ridiculous camera placement and the constant mantra of “more speed cameras” spouted by successive cardboard cut-out police ministers, academics posing as ‘road safety experts’, and the local apology for an RAC, which masquerades as law enforcement in this state.
