Medway mum backs safety cameras
A Medway mother of three whose husband died in a car accident has spoken out on the ‘vital role’ that safety cameras play in cutting deaths and serious injuries.
Karen Burton (left in pic), who lost her husband Steve in an accident in 2004, took part in an online survey to discuss people’s attitudes towards safety cameras.
She commented: “I’m more than pleased to see fixed safety cameras because I strongly believe they do save lives. My husband died on a notorious stretch of road in 2004 and I just wish they had been there sooner and maybe they could have helped prevent his accident. Safety cameras do make motorists drive much more sensibly.”
Katherine Barrett (right in pic), communications officer for the Kent & Medway Safety Camera Partnership, said: “Thanks to a combination of road safety campaigns, engaging with and educating motorists, and enforcement, the number of people killed or seriously injured is now 63% lower across our county’s safety camera sites, compared to the three years before cameras were installed. That’s 324 casualties that have been prevented in Kent and Medway.”
