Road safety charity in favour of smart motorway cameras
12:20pm Sunday 16th February 2014 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.”
