German judge will not give out any more speeding finng fines

A JUDGE is refusing to punish any more speeding drivers – because he says police use cameras to fill up empty municipal coffers.

Helmut Knoener, based in the British Army garrison town of Herford, Germany, has let off more than 40 drivers in a week.

He is issuing no more penalties until MPs look “at how and why speed cameras are used”.

The judge, 62, has become the hero of oppressed motorists.

He asked: “Are radar cameras about increasing road safety or something else altogether?

“The question is whether they are ­primarily a way for municipalities to secure jobs and earn money.”
