Helicopter is a rip off

The helicopter crews will be less joyful. At present they are angels of mercy to those in accidents. Now they have joined the Uttlesford mob and will be engaged in the vital job of reporting cars doing two mph above the speed limit, and be less available for saving lives. A bargain at £10,000 an hour.
