Having watched that vid, I'm not convinced you can take a Tenere up their either.

Re: speed cameras

Average speed cameras are excellent. On our miserably overcrowded roads they prevent the cocks from being too cockish and causing accidents and excessive stop-start behaviour. This results in overall higher average speeds for the majority. And if it saves even 1 road-worker's life, it's worth the ad...
