Motor Insurance: Public back cameras in St Albans

Friday, 19 October 2007

The general public in St Albans would widely welcome the introduction and use of speed cameras, a new study has found.

According to a county council study, 78 per cent of respondents stated that cameras have been implemented so that motorists keep within the law, reports This is Herfordshire.

Furthermore, over 50 per cent believed that speed cameras are in existence in order to reduce the number of accidents that occur on the roads, while 83 per cent argued that keeping under the designated limit is important to achieve this.

Stuart Pile, transport chief in the cabinet said to the paper that: "It seems that for the most part, Hertfordshire's drivers try to abide by the rules of the road and are aware that speed kills and cameras save lives."

Those who go above the speed limit may find that their car insurance premiums are negatively affected when they are caught.

Recently, the Chief Inspector of Dorset Police called for 20mph speed limits outside schools, following government proposals for such a set limit, the Dorset Echo reports.
