Mounts Bay Speed Camera Voted Public Servant of the Year 2014

btt

Flint and the Bell Tower Times‘s network of sources have hooked up to get the to bottom of the Australian condition by any means necessary.

The speed camera that sits on Mounts Bay Road, affectionately dubbed “Trust Fund” by the State Government, has been  awarded the Public Servant of the Year Award 2014, for it’s outstanding contribution to the Government. 

A Government spokesperson told the Bell Tower Times that the speed camera was an obvious choice for the award as:

“Old Trust Fund is everything that you want in a public servant: The ability to sit on its arse all day, earn the Government loads of cash and most importantly, achieve absolutely nothing. We all look up to that speed camera”.

The speed camera netted an unbelievable $2.5 Million in revenue in 2014, which equates roughly to 10,000 speeding fines. Despite the camera’s tireless work, there appears to be no reduction in speeding in the stretch of Mounts Bay Road that it occupies (Perth – Nedlands).

Colin Barnett will present “Trust Fund” with a medallion and a tax-payer funded night of wining and dining, where the State’s politicians will get an opportunity to personally thank “Trust Fund” for the extra revenue needed to pay for their drivers, flights and dinners.

The Bell Tower Times attempted to uncover how many road deaths per year were a result of unsafe road conditions. We were unable to locate this statistic. Sadly, we were able to find statistics on total revenue raised through traffic violations in Western Australia: over $100 Million in 2014.

What says more about the integrity of a Government, the statistics provided to the public or the information withheld? You be the judge.

As for us, we congratulate “Trust Fund”, at least it never sniffed a chair.

The Bell Tower times is run by collective of anonymous and shady Perth figures that have been reporting on ground zero of the Human Zoo we call Australia.
