Speed cameras still snapping

The RAC Foundation has warned that the widespread belief that speed cameras have been switched off is not quite true.

There are still 487 fixed cameras taking photographs out of a total of 2331 fixed camera sites. For those who are not fans of speed cameras, the main news is that there is not much money around to replace the old cameras as they get to the end of their lives. The RAC Foundation quotes an estimate of £20,000 to replace each camera with a digital one.
