New average speed cameras are to be installed across Lancashire.

The point-to-point cameras will cover eight different routes - including stretches which have seen the deaths of thirteen people in just six years.

Altogether, there has been 406 casualties, 62 of those being serious or life-changing.

The installation project will start this month and the full roll-out is planned for completion by the end of the year. Cameras will cover traffic flow in both directions.

Lancashire's Assistant Chief Constable commented: "Our primary aim is for all drivers to adhere to the safe speed limits on our roads and these particular roads are proven to be amongst some of our most dangerous."

He defended the decision saying: "It's well-researched and documented that speeding can kill."

The routes are:

* A565 Southport Road (1.2m) between B5246 at Mere Brow and the Gravel Lane roundabout at Banks.
* A583 Preston New Road (7.5m) between M55 J 4, through Kirkham bypass, and Blackpool Rd at Preston Old Rd, Clifton.
* A588 Head Dyke Lane, Pilling (2m) between Fold House Caravan Park and Bourbles Lane.
* A59 Brockholes Brow, Preston (0.5m) between M6 junction 31 and Glenluce Drive.
* A6 London Road, Preston (0.7m) between Capitol Centre (Winery Lane) and Albyn Street East.
* A675 in Belmont (8.5m) between M65 junction 3, through Abbey Village and Belmont to Scout Road.
* A682 Gisburn Road, Pendle (5.2m) between A59 at Gisburn and Whittycroft Avenue (between Barrowford and Blacko).
* B6232 Grane Road, Haslingden (4.7m) between A56 through Haslingden Grane to A6177 Elton Rd junction with Sough Lne.

No - Inappropriate speed MAY kill.

Not sure what point you're trying to make, fact is speeding can kill ... or rather speeding can lead to an incident where someone dies ... nothing to do with inappropriate speed (however you determine that since what may be inappropriate for you will no doubt be different for me, hence why we have speed limits or it would be a free for all)


Where there's a will ... there's a way.

The faster you go, the more likely you are to be killed. Fact! If you have an accident, the faster you drive, the accident WILL be more serious. It's called kinetic energy (KE) and increases with speed. KE is proportional to speed squared, so double the speed quadruples the KE = more damage.
