No need to warn motorists of speed cameras

It is heartening to hear that the Traffic Police are deploying newer and more efficient gadgets to deter speedsters on the road ("Warning: Better slow down at these hot spots"; May 20).

However, why are there signs to warn drivers of these cameras? It appears to be a contradiction that the police are getting more serious and tough on speeding, yet, are giving their presence away. It appears that this is a waste of resources and time.

The signs warning of speed cameras ahead should be removed. Instead, more signs on speed limits of the roads should be installed. These signs shouldn't be installed just at the start of roads, as motorists may forget the speed limits after a while.

With more signs of allowable speed limits, motorists should have no excuse when they are caught for exceeding these limits.
