St Clement could be Jersey speed camera pioneer

St Clement could become the first parish in Jersey to have fixed speed cameras under new plans.
Parish constable Len Norman said he met residents of St Clement last week following calls for lower speed limits in the parish.
He said they discussed an idea to install two permanent speed cameras in the village area on the inner road in St Clement.
Constable Norman said they could make a real difference in the parish.
He said there was no point having them on the coast road because you would need several to stop drivers slowing down for the cameras and then speeding up again.
The constable said it was believed there were no legal powers to allow fixed cameras in Jersey.
However he said that might not be the case and so he was checking the law.
He said he was also talking to the transport minister about the move.
