Are the days of speed cameras numbered?
It's a year since Swindon became the first council in the UK to scrap fixed speed cameras. Should they be removed from the rest of the UK?
The local authority made its decision claiming that cameras did not reduce the number of accidents on the roads. During this period the accident rate in Swindon is said to have remained the same.
Since then, the coalition government has cut funding for the road safety grant this year and says it will no longer fund new speed cameras.
Should fixed speed cameras be consigned to history? Do you live in the Swindon area? Has the removal of cameras made a difference to road safety?
