Average speed cameras mean no escape for drivers
Average speed cameras will be deployed at entry and exit points to residential areas as an alternative to road humps and chicanes, according to a report last week in The Times.
The report says the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) has approved a new generation of cameras that are linked wirelessly and operate in clusters, meaning that speeding drivers will be caught whichever route they take across a wide area.
Acpo's roads policing enforcement technology committee has approved the cameras after a four-year assessment of their accuracy, which included trials in Belfast and Camden, London.
