Camera vans made more visible

Monday 25th May 2009

Vehicles used by the South Yorkshire Safety Camera Partnership are to be replaced with larger vans that are more visible to road users.
The ‘Making South Yorkshire Roads safer’ logo is shown on both sides and a large speed camera logo appears on the front, rear and sides of the vehicles. In addition to being more visible to road users the new vans will provide a more comfortable working environment for the camera operators.
Gerald Smith, Rotherham Borough Council cabinet member, said: “As a Casualty Reduction Partnership our aim is not to catch motorists out. Speed cameras are placed at known collision hotspots and intended to encourage the public to drive within the speed limit.”
