Speed cameras are the vain of some people’s life and yet they are designed to reduce drivers speeding on public roads.

So why not have the world first GASTO custard camera, where you pass a camera too fast instead of a flash you will get nailed with a custard pie. The faster you are going the bigger the custard pie. If will be a funny outlook on speeding where all drivers could see who had been speeding as their cars would be covered in custard.

Speed cameras are not "designed to reduce drivers speeding on public roads", they're designed to raise money.

       [admin: renamed idea from 'Custerd GASTO' to 'Custard GATSO'.] I'll leave any spelling errors in the body of the idea for the author to correct.   

       [edit: ...or not]

       Meh, custard.   

       Author also refuses to use a spellchecker?

       Hey, I only just read this title.   

       Thought it was someone having a go at my pseudonym.   

       Turns out it's just a crap idea instead.

       Your analogy is not sound Boysparks; most colour blind people afaik see green and red as the same colour, so your Dad would more properly call grass 'grey', which is how he sees it. Even if someone points out it's green (or red for that matter) he is still quite right to call it grey, and I think this means that your analogy with someone who is dyslexic proves exactly the opposite point; someone who sees a colour or a word a certain way is perfectly entitled to call or spell that colour or word what or how they see it.

       //someone who sees a colour or a word a certain way is perfectly entitled to call or spell that colour or word what or how they see it.//   

       Actually, that's not the case. Of course, legally, you can spell anything any way you like (like "chicken" - the main artery that carries blood from the heart). But spelling is not a matter of opinion. It is a convention to which people adhere for their mutual convenience, just as computers adhere to often arbitrary standards to enable them to exchange data.   

       If you mizpell things, it jest diztracts the raider, and maks it harder two get you're idea acres. This is not to pick on dyslexics, but simply to point out that it is perverse to leave errors in place if there is an easy way to rectify them.
