Speed Limits: Cameras

Volume 462: debated on Thursday 28 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what research he has (a) commissioned and (b) reviewed on the likely change in number of speeding fines issued as a result of the new speed camera guidance effective from 1 April. (145765)

The Department has not commissioned or reviewed any research on the likely change in number of speeding fines issued as a result of the new speed camera guidance. The guidance provides local authorities with greater freedom and flexibility on the deployment of cameras, allowing them to enforce in response to community concerns or at sites where there are speeding problems and a high risk that casualties will occur.
