    Actually they do measure speed as well as traffic volume. They are not accurate enough to issue speeding tickets but they do measure speed for statistical purposes. Traffic volume can be measured by a single cable.

    Jimbow, whilst I am not privy to their group activities. I believe the 2 groups meet up occasionally to discuss issues. I don’t know if they meet up in 2 groups or 1 big group though. Maybe a bit of both. I don’t really have a problem with people getting together in groups but I don’t really understand why there are 2 Independent groups if they decide to work as a coalition. I would think it would be better if there were two groups to have a broadly left leaning group and a broadly right leaning group. If that makes sense.

    For information, there are 2 Independent Councillors in Wrexham who are not affiliated to either group. :-)

    The thing is, you have to have either a PCC office or another body such as the Police Authority of the past. Either way there will be the cost. Sorry but you cannot just get rid, it doesn’t work like that.

    sportsboy – Not actually true. Prior the the PCC’s running the Police Forces, that work was done by the Police Authorities. There is plenty of information on the internet which shows that it was a pretty similar cost.

    Here is just one set of information which was obtained by a FIO in West Mercia

    “…. However, as a comparison, it might be useful to consider the staffing
    budget for the Police Authority and compare that with the PCC office.

    The staffing budget for 2011/12 for the West Mercia Police Authority was
    £765,000. (This includes staff and member allowances).

    The staffing budget, 2012/13 including Part Year Commissioner’s costs was
    £774,000. (Includes part year members allowances and part year
    Commissioners salary.

    The full year effect of Commissioners budget in 2013/14 is £730,000
    (includes Commissioner and team only).”

    I would not trust Facebook or Twitter as a way to verify anyone’s identity- same issue as on this thread.
    Not supporting Mike Davies anymore than any other Councillor but here are his details- not he is one of only two Councillors in Wrexham who have generally decided not to become part of an Independent Group but to actually remain Independent

    Facebook and Twitter have little symbols (blue ticks) to indicate if this really is the person, which whilst not perfect are more reliable indicators that people are who they say they are than just taking someone’s word for it. I appreciate you have given me a link to Mike Davies’ page, but that still does not prove that the Mike Davies on Wrexham.com forum is that same person. I actually happen to believe that he is, but I do not know this for a fact. Using a real-sounding name does not necessarily mean that we are talking to the person whose name it is. It can be just as anonymous as any other user name.

    It would be very simple to check who I am. If anybody emailed me (using the email address on the council website), and asked me if it was indeed me posting on wxm.com they would have the answer :-)
