New speed cameras have been installed on the notorious Evo Triangle in North Wales.

The Evo Triangle is considered one of the best routes in the UK for driving enthusiasts, but it brings its own share of troubles - many have been killed or injured whilst testing their driving skills.

As part of a £500,000 initiative, average speed cameras are now been tested on a stretch of the A543 near the Sportsmans Arms on Denbigh Moors. Following the trial, they are set to go live in the coming weeks.

It has been reported that this is just the first of many plans to improve road safety in the area.

A spokeswoman for North Wales Police said: "All too often, police and our partners in the other emergency services are called to serious and fatal road traffic collisions across the region. Staying safe on the road applies to every single one of us, whether we have two or four wheels on our vehicle.

Whilst the vast majority of motorists drive or ride appropriately, some choose to use the roads as a racetrack, committing serious breaches of road safety legislation, such as speeding and driving or riding dangerously thereby putting themselves and other road users at risk of death or life changing injury."

She added: "During the installation period of the average speed camera scheme, North Wales Police will continue to provide an enforcement presence in order to ensure compliance with the law."

If these are 'enthusiasts' then fitting false plates will not be difficult. I doubt it will deter them.

I suppose it’s a step in the right direction. The vast majority of speeders wouldn’t bother with the hassle of changing plates, but yes, there will be some who it won’t deter.
