    If speeding and other minor motoring offenses are not about raising money, why do they use fines and points as a way of punishment? A more fitting punishment would be to force the offender to do 100 good form press ups, or a run of 7 miles in a good time. Only upon failing this initial task would the offender have to pay up. For athletic people, they could be banned from their next event, have a point deducted or other penalty relevant to their chosen sport.
    Or just give them community service.
    Police claiming speed cams are not for raising money is a bit like an ugly bastard claiming real beauty is on the inside.

    Because people don't like getting fined.
