Average speed cameras mean no escape for drivers

00.00 | 30 November 2011 |

Average speed cameras will be deployed at entry and exit points to residential areas as an alternative to road humps and chicanes, according to a report last week in The Times.

The report says the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) has approved a new generation of cameras that are linked wirelessly and operate in clusters, meaning that speeding drivers will be caught whichever route they take across a wide area.

Acpo’s roads policing enforcement technology committee has approved the cameras after a four-year assessment of their accuracy, which included trials in Belfast and Camden, London.
