Motor insurance: Speed camera 'in wrong place'

Friday, 01 February 2008

The Highways Agency has said that a speed camera put on one section of the M27 cannot be used as it is in the incorrect position.

One of a series of devices placed at a section of the motorway is redundant as it is too far back from junction 11, reports the BBC.

Until the problem has been rectified, police officers will have to monitor the stretch, according to a spokesman at the agency.

Roger Jones remarked that a number of tests have to be carried out before any changes can be fully made.

"Another camera has been ordered and we are expecting it to arrive fairly soon. Then it has to be tested before it is operational," he told the news source.

He advised drivers to keep to the speed limit at all times regardless of the camera.

In related news, mobile speed cameras are to be introduced in Brixington, Exmouth, something officials stated will cut down on dangerous driving.

Drivers caught breaking the law could find that their motor insurance premiums are impacted upon.
