Traffic Lights: Cameras

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 21 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what assessment was made of the merits of requiring traffic light cameras to be brightly painted when the decision was taken to make that a requirement for fixed speed cameras; and if he will make a statement. (144138)

No assessment was made. Traffic light signals are, by their very nature, highly visible so it is unnecessary to require any cameras monitoring them to be brightly painted. Traffic light signals monitored by cameras are however clearly signed in advance.
