Think of all the money they will have collected in fines, that should have covered their salaries for the month

Perhaps they get paid on a commission only basis ? That would have a way of concentrating the mind.

Frankly it's not before time.
The standard of driving by certain drivers here
beggars belief.
One only has to look at the figures for fatalities & serious injuries here
to see that.
There seems generally to be a total disregard for safety or the law by
a large proportion of drivers here.
Let's hope that the GNR continue to carry out these measures.
