Interviewed , Thursday morning 6 th Nov on TV a Police inspector on the spot told viewers last year they successfully prosecuted 20 of the top international rally drivers for speeding between stages and more that 2000 members of the public.
He regarded this as a satisfactory start and this year they had doubled the number of hidden mobile speed trap detector vans and officers out in the remote areas to catch as many people as they could and return with a much improved haul of fines, although he said the money was not important to them !
You will remember the Government changed the rules on the use of fine receipts so that Police could keep a proportion of the money they gathered. for their own use in buying new equipment for Police stations etc.
It would be interesting to hear experiences from people who have just returned from spectating in Wales.
