Taking the new bike for a spin this weekend, I noticed construction of what appears to be some serious surveillance equipment along much of the A465 (the famous "Heads of the Valleys") road in south Wales.
Quite a number of yellow tubular projections were underway, the type that looks like the 'average speed' monitors, where you get a bunch of cameras across a long horizontal bar.
This is an extremely popular route for bikers, where we get the chance to open it up a bit, with decent hills, bends, and fairly reasonable road surface. Seems like they want to put the mockers on it.
Spying on us with our own money never goes out of fashion in this country, not even in the 'age of austerity' when it comes to any other public service. Wonder how widespread all this is, and if this open prison we call Great Britain is going to be a total surveillance state.
