I like it. I don't get all "road-raged" about it, but it does annoy me when I'm heading up/down/whatever the M50 and stupid 4-wheelers are 1) in the right-hand lane doing 62mph/100km/h and 2) STILL hit the brakes at the speed camera road markings. It is dangerous.

Good grief. I am more familiar w/cops in the US, who are MUCH more anal about catching speeders and traffic law enforcement in general, and I don't know exactly what the Garda and/or the cameras are trained for here - but if you're not doing >10mph or so over the limit in the US, you're generally good to go (and >5mph in residential areas).

I would guess that roughly the same applies worldwide.

Why people feel the need to hit the brakes whenever they approach a speed camera, or whenever they see a speedtrap, it escapes me. Esp when they're already at or below the posted speed limit.
