Strange visitors

It's interesting to examine the trails left by visitors to this site. Some of the recent search terms that lead here:

I think that slightly exaggerates the recent hot issue in Maleny.

Evidently someone was after me (but they pulled the pin at filling out the contact form).

And a user from this domain has been here a couple of times recently:

I guess they will be disappointed.

Law enforcement

I have this long-standing question regarding speed cameras to which I have been unable to find a satisfactory answer: if you speed past two cameras without slowing down, is that one or two speeding offences?

Don't say two, because the answer is not as straight forward as it may seem. What if the two cameras are only 100 m apart? 10 m? In the same van and fired 0.01s apart?

Come to think of it, why not put 12 camera's in one van and fire them .001s apart? That way, even with the minimum demerit point speeding offence in Queensland, the driver would lose their license. There would be no opportunity for repeat offences, the road would be safer and the traffic load on our highway network would be reduced.

I am surprised some dimwit bureaucrat has not clicked to the potential of such a practical and cost effective enforcement measure. They have come up with plenty of other equally stupid ideas.

In the meantime, I would still like a definitive answer to my question.
