Turn off A14 speed cameras and fund CCTV instead
I AM entirely in agreement with Roy White who complained in your edition of September 28 that the average speed cameras on the A14 have no effect whatsoever on the heavy goods vehicles that are involved in so many of the accidents on that road.
Actually, I do not believe that anyone except the previous chief constable ever expected the cameras to have any real effect on the accident rate because the sheer volume of traffic frequently prevents vehicles from exceeding the speed limit anyway.
So I suggest that the average speed cameras should be turned off and their control room be closed. The savings resulting from that measure could then be used to retain the Huntingdon CCTV system, which does serve a useful purpose.
