RoSPA leaps to the defence of speed cameras

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has jumped to the defence of speed cameras, after the Association of British Drivers (ABD) yesterday advocated a report that said they were ineffective in reducing collisions.

RoSPA has slammed the ABD's suggestion that they actually cost lives and questioned the validity of the research, which was undertaken independently by engineer Dave Finney and based on a study of cameras in the Thames Valley area.
