The great safety camera switch-on

3 November 2010

RoadSafe is delighted with Oxfordshire County Council’s plans to switch its safety cameras back on. The decision to re-instate the county's fixed and mobile safety cameras was confirmed in a council meeting on 2 November.

This is excellent news for all law abiding drivers. Cameras are a useful and effective tool for enforcing laws that help keep all road users safe.

The cameras were switched off on 1 August 2010, due to funding issues. The council and Thames Valley Safer Roads Partnership, who operate the cameras, will issue more details about the switch-on in the next few weeks.

Early in October, the Safer Roads Partnership published a study, which reviewed the performance of camera sites against the rest of the road network. It used collision records dating back to the early 1990s, and shows that cameras reduce crash rates.
