Speed Limits: Cameras

Volume 495: debated on Monday 6 July 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what guidance notes have been issued to local highways authorities on safety camera partnerships since May 1997; and which of those notes remain in effect. (284130)

The Department for Transport (DfT) issued the Handbook of Rules and Guidance for the National Safety Camera Programme for England and Wales in 2001 which was revised regularly until the final version was published in January 2006. This was superseded by DfT Circular 01/2007, “Guidance on the Deployment of Speed and Red-Light Cameras” issued on 31 January 2007. The guidance was placed in the Library of the House and is also available on the Department’s website.
