Road safety charity in favour of smart motorway cameras

First published in News

ROAD safety charity Brake has spoken out in support of Highways Agency proposals to roll out speed cameras on parts of ‘smart’ motorways, to target drivers exceeding the 70mph limit.


Julie Townsend, Brake deputy chief executive, said: “Speed cameras are an extremely well evidenced, cost-effective way to improve safety and reduce deaths and injuries on roads where they are placed, preventing families going through the trauma of a sudden bereavement or life-changing injury.”

Julie Townsend's comment could also be related to the fact that speed camera manufacturers make significant donations to Brake.

People who protests about speed cameras are as suspicious as someone who complaining about cameras in shops to prevent shoplifting.

They are probably criminals who resent the possibility of being caught in the act.

Law abiding people have nothing to fear from cameras on roads or in shops.

Apart from deliberately breaking the speed limit in your car in a wilful and criminal manner the only possible reason for doing so is that you cannot pay proper attention to road signs or your speedometer, and such people should not be allowed to drive anyway.
