Years since the speed awareness course was launched in England and new figures reveal road deaths have more than halved in that time. But many drivers nabbed at a few miles per hour over the limit feel they are driving safely and the victims of a "money-making" racket. I was one of them.
When I was caught doing 35mph in a 30 zone and had to pay £88 to go on the course, I was fuming. But after three hours in the classroom my attitude had changed.
This topic was suggested by a guest so I thought I'd have a look and see if other people think that these courses are all about making money. It certainly looks that way. Personally I've neen on a couple of them and found them beneficial and I think they are better than just simply getting penalty points.
