Despite 4.5m being raised from the use of speed cameras in Northern Ireland in the last four years, none of this money has been spent to further increase road safety in the region.

A Member of the Legislative Assembly, Ulster Unionist Robin Swann, commented "It's an absolute outrage that despite almost 4.5 million being raised from speed camera fines over the last four years, that by the Department of Justice's own admission, not one penny has been reinvested in road safety initiatives."

He added: "Surely there's an overwhelming moral obligation on the Executive to use at least some of the funds received from speeding fines to encourage road safety and ultimately reduce deaths on our roads."

The Department of Justice turned down the opportunity to comment.

A spokesman for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents said: "Road crashes cause immeasurable loss and trauma for the victims and their families, and impose an enormous economic loss to Northern Ireland's economy.

He also argued that by using extra road safety measures lives and life-changing injuries could be prevented saving a huge amount of public money.
