About Safety Cameras
Safety cameras are a proven method of reducing collisions involving speed and they have become another option available to help deal with speed related casualties.
They will primarily be used where there is a 30 or 40mph speed limit.

Criteria for New Sites

Static camera sites can only be positioned on a section of road, 1km in length, where there has been a minimum of fourfatal and/or serious collisions within a three year period. The criteria for mobile sites are for two fatal and/or serious collisions on a 1km section of road within a three year period.
All new cameras are painted bright yellow to make them easily identifiable to drivers.
