Car insurance: Digital cameras for Potters Bar

Monday, 14 April 2008

New digital cameras are to be used in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, as older devices are phased out, it has been revealed.

Hertfordshire county council claimed that the development should offer a strong preventative to accidents in the future, reports the Hendon & Finchley Times.

Such changes will occur in stages, observed the head of the council's road safety unit, Theresa Casbard.

"The number of people killed or seriously injured at camera sites has been reduced by nearly 65 per cent since the Safety Camera Partnership was started in 2002," she told the news provider.

Funding for the modern cameras is to be offered by the council itself, while each new site overhaul is to cost £6,500.

The new cameras will also be able to capture drivers travelling at illegal speeds in the night, which the older ones could not.

Residents in Derby recently suggested that the speed limit be changed because a high number of accidents have taken place in recent times.

Motorists should ensure that they have adequate car insurance in case they are involved in incidents.
