Have you already heard about the New Stealth Cameras for UK Motorways ? Well if you haven’t here’s some information for you, and trust me, you won’t be very excited or happy about it.
The new stealth cameras are about to be installed to catch motorists who exceed the limit of 70mph on a variety of UK motorways. The main reason why they are called stealth is because they won’t be so visible for drivers, as will have a dark grey colour rather than as standard yellow. For the first time ever the highways are about to be loaded with those cameras.
According to highway agency the new cameras will help to reduce road accidents as driver will proceed with more caution. But from my point of few I don’t see it happening as cameras will be literally invisible for drivers, especially when driving over 70mph, so I don’t really see how that can stop any potential driver from slowing down. Some people suggest that those new stealth cameras are not so much about road safety but about generating income hough fines.
“We are opposed to speed cameras in general. The evidence of their success in promoting safety is not good and in reality what is happening now is that the police are using speed cameras to fund their other activities through speed awareness courses. If these cameras are grey rather than yellow they are going to be harder to spot and so will have no impact in slowing traffic down. If there is a good reason for the traffic to be slowed down then the cameras need to be as visible as possible.”
And I as a UK driver completely agree with that statement. So what do you think about the new Cameras across UK motorways, will they have an impact on rad safety?
