UK Roads To Get ‘Intelligent’ Speed Cameras

Highways Agency rolls out another camera-intensive initiative A NEW-STYLE ‘intelligent’ speed camera is set to appear on Britain’s roads over the next 18 months, thanks to a new Highways Agency initiative. The new breed of speed catchers don’t flash, so road users won’t know they’ve been nabbed, well not until the notice letter drops through their front door. The new system can also simultaneously cover multiple lanes, says a report on Channel 4 News. Speeding lorry drivers won’t escape the new camera technology either, as it can differentiate between trucks and cars, unlike the current cameras in use today. Any good news to report? Earlier this month the Conservatives announced they would scrap the Government’s planned speed camera regime if they win the next election. This new initiative looks like becoming another nail in Gordon’s coffin. Taken from:
