THE installation of A14 average speed cameras has very little (or, indeed, nothing) to do with reducing accidents or helping congestion. This is a backhanded strategy to install the technology to monitor and record use of the A14.

The next step has been publicised widely - the real aim is to introduce pay-as-you-drive tolls. Ensuring that the technology is already in place is just one way to ensure that the A14 is selected as a pilot scheme, and that these tolls can be introduced at the earliest opportunity.

Until such time as there is a reliable and convenient public transport provision for the villages along this stretch of the A14, fleecing those residents who have no option but to drive along this road is utterly unjust. Unfortunately, it also appears inevitable.
