Cameras click with motorists
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.
