Brake supports motorway speed camera roll out

Brake has spoken out in support of Highways Agency proposals to roll out speed cameras on stretches of 'smart' motorways, to target drivers exceeding the 70mph limit.

Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive, Brake, the road safety charity, said: "Speed cameras are an extremely well evidenced, cost-effective way to improve safety and reduce deaths and injuries on roads where they are placed, preventing families going through the trauma of a sudden bereavement or life-changing injury.

"Put simply: speed cameras reduce speeding, which helps to prevent deadly crashes. Breaking the speed limit is risky and illegal, so only drivers who break the law will face fines."
