2015 CamerAlert Speed Camera Statistics

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! It's time for a quick rundown of CamerAlert speed camera stats from last year, and boy have you lot been busy!

Comic courtesy of Cyanide and Happiness (Explosm.net).

Throughout 2015 there were a total of 3,560 confirmed new and modified cameras added to the database. These were submitted by 930 unique users resulting in 428 years worth of FREE subscriptions being handed out! Remember, many of our regular submitters already have Lifetime subscriptions from forever ago so these numbers aren't included in the 428.

The total number of speed camera submissions for 2015 amounted to a massive 38,938! Almost 90% of these were submitted using our CamerAlert app for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android (phones and tablets). These were submitted by 3,412 unique users. There were also 6,256 'mobile seen again' reports submitted through our CamerAlert app.

Our CamerAlert speed camera database now has 36,031 active cameras in 62 countries - all available from a single subscription (we don't charge per region like some companies). If you want to include total numbers including unverified mobile cameras then that figure increases to 40,799 active cameras and unverified mobiles in 84 countries.

So, well done you lot! Let's keep the submissions coming and help keep CamerAlert as accurate and up to date as possible. All the best for 2016.

That's 11.4 cameras each. And

That's 3.8 cams per person.

But with 38,938 submissions (nearly 750 a week) resulting in 3,560 confirmed new/changed cams, you can see the mammoth minor miracle that MaFt performs in coordinating all these submissions into 'new' camera locations so that PGPSW database users can have the best camera location source around.

Well done MaFt and well done you guys and gals.

Hear hear!

Plus at least three - and that explains why I sometimes get very rude responding to people who complain too thoughtlessly.

Two of them are obesiting!!

People who live on motorways with roadworks ;)

I would like to make a suggestion for an improvement.
I would like to see the fixed cameras split into forward facing and others.
Forward facing are far more 'dangerous ' than the regular Gatso type.

Why are they? Surely if you are warned that they are there, there is little difference other than about 50 yards in the trap point.

Disagree. On coming cameras have to be more risky on approach than Gatso, regardless of the warning distance you put in. If I knew it was a forward facing camera, I would definitely be more aware, and it would be interesting to hear from other full time drivers on this point.

I think I qualify as a full time driver. I don't care which way a camera is pointing, only that it is trapping in the direction I'm travelling.

I agree with M8TJT's opinion that the comparative distance of just a few yards isn't relevant to me.

It's been requested before but we're not going to be separating the front- and rear-facing cameras into separate files.

And why is that, if it's been requested before ?
