When I noticed a few persons around the Mr Bricolage’s speed camera around 2pm, I thought that they were probably going to paint the pole as they did in Bambous recently. I parked and immortalized this moment with my camera before uploading it on Facebook. Couple of hours later when I came across an article on the newspaper, Weekend, I understood what they were up to.
All the new speed cameras recently installed on our roads ( View map) won’t be operational until further notice, probably till 1st June 2013, as reported by the media. Indeed, the Minister Anil Baichoo confessed that there was a “slight technical mistake” in the cameras whose implementation costed around Rs172.2 millions.
Ever since their operation, the cameras have been randomly flashing vehicles driving under the speed limit. Foreign experts have been called for their help and finally, a few days later, there’s this news that the cameras have a ‘fault’. The authorities are working on this problem and might also disgard (all?) speed excess cases recorded.
Poor Baichoo. His bad times are back again. I wonder how slight the mistake can be, especially if they had to disable the cameras! LOL!
