Re: Ask any actuary
They completed the section of the North Devon link road between our village and Tiverton, but it was several months before it opened to anything other than construction traffic. We used to skateboard down it on weekends - five miles of pristine tarmac, downhill all the way to town. They even put chicanes in every quarter mile or so to make it more interesting for us.
More recently, my dad watched the police set up a speed trap just west of the Bolham roundabout on that road. An unmarked police car drove west from the roundabout along the single lane section, considerably under the speed limit, building up a queue of traffic behind it. Then it pulled into the layby at the end of that section. Everyone in the queue immediately accelerated and tried overtaking as they entered the two lane section just in time to get caught by the speed trap the police had placed just around the corner. The unmarked car then did a U-turn and went back to the roundabout to repeat the process several times.
