It has been reported that the number of speed cameras operating on the UK’s roads is set to increase thanks to recent advances in technology.
Brake, the country’s leading road safety charity, has welcomed the move, which they say will lead to less cars and vans in Dorset and beyond exceeding speed limits and endangering pedestrians or fellow drivers.
With new digital devices now set to replace a good deal of the ageing film cameras that are currently in use around Britain, the organisation has hit out at those who claim their deployment is primarily motivated by money-making, pointing out that only those who break the law are penalised.
The number of fatalities brought about by road traffic accidents has, thankfully, fallen significantly in the last few decades, with most owners of Ford Transit vans and other drivers responding to a recent survey attributing this at least partly to an increased presence of speed cameras.
