How the average speed cameras look

Two notorious accident black-spots in Preston are to have average speed cameras introduced with six more added across Lancashire.

The locations have been decided after 406 casualties on the selected routes since 2011. The cameras will cover. traffic in both directions.

Tim Jacques, Chair of the Lancashire Partnership for Road Safety, said: “Our primary aim and intention is for all drivers to adhere to the speed limit on our roads, therefore reducing the risk of collisions and making our roads safer for all to use.

“It is well documented and well researched that speeding does kill, but we know that a combination of education, enforcement and engineering solutions can save lives and reduce the number of people seriously injured on the county’s roads.

“Using average speed cameras is just one way that can help us achieve further steps ‘Towards Zero Lancashire’ which is the vision of the partnership – preventing all collisions that result in death and serious injury.”

Assistant Chief Constable Jacques added: “Most people will see no impact to their overall journeys as this is all about enforcing speed limits that already exist on the routes. Journey times are likely to be more reliable as the cameras will reduce the number of incidents that require road closures.”

Research by the RAC Foundation shows fatal and serious collision decrease by around a third after cameras are introduced. The camera at the Capitol Centre is expected to be in operation around March. The others will be staggered until the end of 2017.
