Cam­eras click with mo­torists

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

WHILE the gen­eral per­cep­tion may be that the ma­jor­ity of mo­torists are op­posed to speed cam­eras this is ap­par­ently not the case.

Ac­cord­ing to the In­sti­tute of Ad­vanced Mo­torists, 80 per cent of us ac­cept the use of speed cam­eras – down by one per cent on last year – and sev­enty nine per cent think that speed cam­eras are use­ful in re­duc­ing in­juries, a fall of six per cent from 2012.

How­ever, scep­ti­cism among the mo­tor­ing pub­lic re­mains con­stant. More than half of us (52 per cent) do not be­lieve that cam­eras are only sited at lo­ca­tions where ac­ci­dents hap­pen and al­most half of driv­ers think that rais­ing money is the main pur­pose of safety cam­eras.
