Sir: Your damnable idea that speed limits are flexible guidelines has the potential to do a lot of damage to the Kill Your Speed campaign ("Ministers are speeding in the wrong direction", 20 January).

It may be that enforcing speed limits is a waste of police time - they are pretty useless at it simply because the problem is so rife. The answer is to equip some civilian vehicles with video cameras and for the Deputy Public Prosecutor to use the evidence so gathered to bring prosecutions.

I'm so sick of the arrogance and virtual immunity of speeders that I'd happily pay for a camera myself, and I'd certainly use it.
