Brake backs motorway speed camera plan

This is The West Country: Brake backs motorway speed camera plan Brake backs motorway speed camera plan

ROAD safety charity Brake has spoken out in support of Highways Agency proposals to roll out speed cameras on stretches of ‘smart' motorways to target drivers who exceed the 70mph limit.

Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive, said: “Speed cameras are an extremely well-evidenced, costeffective way to improve safety, and reduce deaths and injuries on roads, preventing families from going through the trauma of a sudden bereavement or a life-changing injury.

“Put simply, speed cameras reduce speeding, which helps to prevent deadly crashes.

“Breaking the speed limit is risky and illegal, so only drivers who break the law will face fines.”

I just can't see why people have a problem with speed cameras. Breaking the speed limit increases risk and is illegal.

Whilst nearly every motorist dislikes speed cameras, including myself! These are effective and do force people to slow down for a prolonged period. Much better than an opportunist speed camera van hidden behind a sign or around a bend. With the amount of accidents on the M5 in somerset hopefully this will help to reduce them, god knows they could have possibly prevented the fireworks night accident....
