Speed-cam stats to be published, indicates gov

Think your local cam is pointless? Now you can prove it

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Department for Transport is proposing that councils and police will have to publish data about speed cameras.

The data could include accident rates at speed camera sites, vehicle speeds and the numbers of drivers prosecuted or offered training after offences are recorded on camera.

Road safety minister Mike Penning said that where taxpayers' money is spent on speed cameras it is right that information about their effectiveness should be made public.

He said that the proposals would "help show what impact cameras are having on accident and casualty rates and also how the police are dealing with offenders".

"This is in line with our commitment to improve transparency of government data so that the public are able to make more informed judgements about the work of local and central government."

The DoT is working with police, local authorities and the Highways Agency on its proposals and intends to introduce the changes in April.
