A pair of speed cameras in Peterborough have proved to be remarkably lucrative for their installers, as they have potentially netted £54,000 from speeding drivers in the first ten days of their service.

The cameras on the A1139 Frank Perkins Parkway in Peterborough have issued at least 900 tickets in the first week and a half of their lives, and are on track to be the highest earning of any in the country. Each ticket could see the punished driver fined to the tune of £60.
