Motor Insurance: Cameras in dark 'go too far'

Monday, 14 January 2008

Speed cameras that can capture drivers in the dark in North Wales have gone too far, according to one county councillor.

North Wales Police recently decided to adopt the cameras that still perform when the light is dim, reports the Wrexham Evening Leader.

But Penyfford's Flintshire county councillor Colin Bithell claimed that the police need to become more lenient in their drive against speeding vehicles and reassess their resources.

"North Wales Police already say they haven't got enough officers and I would prefer to see them move away from speeding now and make people feel secure and policed in their communities instead," he told the news source.

He added that he is surprised the police force can afford to keep up such measures and that it should "hold back" on some of its initiatives.

Manager of the Arrive Alive campaign Inspector Essi Ahari stated that the cameras should be a good move because more accidents occur in winter months.

Drivers involved in accidents could see that their motor insurance premiums are affected.
