Speed Cameras on residential roads

The Home Office is set to approve average speed cameras (SPECS) on residential roads in the New Year

The cameras will be sited at entry and exit points to residential areas and are capable of tracking a vehicle over 15 miles via their wireless network. They will provide a better way of controlling speed than the more traditional chicanes and speed bumps but critics of the idea say that motorists will still be prone to speeding as the system doesn’t factor in traffic lights and junctions.
