Fifteen roadworks and highway speed cameras in the UK have raised 4.7M GBP in the last at least 18

Fifteen roadworks and highway speed cameras in the UK have raised 4.7M GBP (6.49M EUR) in the last at least 18.

Mirror.co.uk reports 77,666 motorists were snapped breaking the speed limits thus raising 4,700,000 GBP (6,488,400 EUR). No exact time period is being mentioned but, for example, around 13,000 drivers were caught on the M54 in Shropshire and Staffordshire over an 18-month period. On the M6 at Thelwall Viaduct, Cheshire, on the other hand, speed cameras snapped about 11,000 vehicles between March and May last year.

Hugh Bladon of the Alliance of British Drivers commented that “when there was a trend for the cameras to be switched off there was no increase in the accident rate.” However, a spokesman for Highways England said that “a tiny minority (of motorists) deem it appropriate to speed through roadworks” and “their blatant disregard for road safety puts other drivers and our workforce at risk.”
