305 Redundant Cameras Left In Limbo

The Express and Star have reported that the fate of 305 redundant speed cameras in the West Midlands is the subject of debate.

Apparently the decision is to spend 489,000 to upgrade some of the currently empty cased, wet-film speed camera to digital technology or pay 178,000 to have them removed altogether.

The region's councils' speed cameras budget was reduced by 750,000 in 2011. This left West Midlands Police to have to find the remaining 1m bill.

The decision was then made last year to switch to mobile cameras and they increased the fleet of mobile camera vans from two to four.

A report is still being put together by Centro, the West Midlands Integrated Transport Authority. A Centro spokesman commented: "A report into the future policy on safety cameras continues to be developed with careful consideration being given to road safety implications and the need for a financially sustainable system."
