Motor insurance: New cameras could 'still be used'

Wednesday, 02 April 2008

Modern speed cameras may be installed in one area of Cambridgeshire if the government approves them, it has been revealed.

The devices may be put in place on a road that links Ramsey and Chatteris, the local council stated, as reported by the Hunts Post.

While a back-up plan was in place by the organisation to revert to normal speed cameras if it could not implement the latest technology, team leader at Cambridgeshire county council's road safety engineering unit Amanda Mays said that she hoped the new items will be considered.

"Putting average cameras along this road is a priority for us and to make sure we start work this financial year we are working closely with the supplier to produce a flexible scheme where, if necessary, we could install the current average camera system," she commented.

Reasons for the use of the newer cameras is that they are easier to install and can be operated in a simpler manner than those currently used, Ms Mays remarked.

This week it was reported that police in Wales have concealed a speed camera in a horse box in an attempt to catch drivers.

Motorists found to have been speeding may find that their motor insurance premiums are negatively impacted upon.
