Life savers

News analysis

On the basis of historical trend data, the government estimates that there were 109 fewer people killed or seriously injured as a result of the increased camera enforcement.

On average, the number of people killed or seriously injured at the camera sites is down by 47%, and the average speed is down by 5.6mph.

It is estimated that £27M has been saved by the reduction of casualties and collisions at camera sites in the pilot areas when account is taken of ambulance and medical costs, lost output and the human costs of road accidents.
