Record speeding fines from speed cameras on M62 motorway

The speed cameras on the greater Manchester M62 motorway are generating record speeding fines for motorists caught exceeding the variable speed limit.

More than 18,000 speeding motorists have been fined for speeding offences on the motorway between Junction 18 and Junction 20.

Whilst the vast majority of the speeding fines have been dealt with by way of a conditional offer a fixed penalty, in relation to the higher speeding offences recorded by the cameras there have been a large number of police prosecutions involving cases before the magistrates court.

Information obtained under the Freedom of Information Act has indicated that 73 motorists per day, on average, are caught by the speed cameras for speeding offences.

Analysis: Is There Proof Speed Cameras Reduce Speeding?

It is regularly said by the powers that be, that the presence of speed cameras on our roads improves road safety by reducing traffic speed.

However, a careful examination of the facts does not support this. The most profitable speed camera has been identified as an average speed check on the M60 at Stockport, Greater Manchester. This system has been there for years. One would expect therefore, that traffic moving along that stretch of motorway would be moving at 50mph. Not so. Recent police figures show that in the last 3 years it has generated £1.9 million through motorists being fined.

Given that fixed penalty speeding tickets are £60 a time it is not hard to work out that despite the presence of these speed cameras, a huge volume of motorists have broken the speed limit. Clearly they don't work. They do however generate further government revenue out of the motorist. I remain to be convinced that money is not taking priority over issues of safety.

France Drop Speed Camera Offenses For The Day

Today looks like being a good day for motorists in France. The French Police are so fed up with Francois Hollande that for today only they are not going to enforce the law when it comes to speeding motorists. I'm not quite sure how the French logic links the Prime Minister with speeding offences, but I am sure that it will provide a welcome respite for the beleagured motorists.

It also provides an excellent opportunity to see what impact this will have upon road safety. One assumes that if there is no increase in road traffic accidents then speed camera enforcement is not there to make the roads safer. But simply to generate Government revenue.

Speeding motorists targeted by the government

The war against the motorist continues with the rolling out of two new types of speed camera across large areas of the country. You may recall a year or so ago press articles proclaiming the end of the speed camera. In some areas such as Wiltshire traffic enforcement cameras could be seen covered up and out of service.

Unfortunately predictions of the speed cameras demise were premature.

Truvelo D Cam Speed Camera

The first new traffic enforcement camera to be used is the Truvelo D Cam camera. This is far smaller and much less visible than the older generation speed cameras. The real problem for the motorist is that it does not flash soyou have no idea youve been photographed. The device does not need film and so can never run out. This means that it will never be out of service, massively increasing the cameras ability to catch the errant motorist.

ZenGrab Lane Watch Mk2 Speed Camera

The second device which has many of the above characteristics is the ZenGrab Lane Watch Mk2. This even has the ability to catch motorcycles and is designed to enforce a whole range of motoring offences, not just speeding. Drive carefully.

Motorway speeding offences are on the increase

The number of prosecutions for speeding offences on the M1 has reached record levels.

A 20 mile section of the M1 is generating more than £300,000 a week in speeding fines after the motorway speed cameras were triggered over 132,000 times in less than a one year period.

This equates to over 500 drivers per day being caught for speeding by the speed cameras positioned on the motorway between Junction 19 in Leicestershire and Junction 15 near Northampton.

This stretch of motorway has been revealed as the number one spot for catching speeding motorists.

The biggest speed camera hotspots are:-

1 – M1 Northampton

2–   A282 Dartford Crossing

3–   A 28 Canterbury

4 – M60 Stockport

5 – the M6 toll Lichfield

6–  A1 Barrowby Thorns

7–  A15 Snitterby

8 – Limehouse Link London

9–  A57 Sheffield

10– A414 Corby
