Big brother meet Pavlov

Or we could call it the law of unintended consequences.

A town council in Wales is going to remove a speed camera from an on ramp because of the congestion that sometimes causes a 5 mile back-up.
Because people sees the cam and automatically hit the brakes...even if they're already going the speed limit.
Kinda like here when these morons come almost to a complete STOP if they see a cop on the side of the road giving someone a present.

I have to give them some credit in recognizing and doing at least something about it.
Unlike most Liberals where the results of their actions have no relationship at all with action its self....because the INTENTION is what matters.
How they WANTED to make it "better" in spite of how it actually ended up.

Conservatives (are you listening to this RNC?) actually recognize some relationship between what they do and what happens afterwards.
