It has been announced that the dormant speed cameras in Swindon will not be reactivated.

Councillor Dale Heenan of the Borough Council’s Highways and Transport department has put an end to the speculation that they may return.

He commented: "We appreciate the calls from some for speed cameras to be switched back on, but I can assure you that they will not be making a return to Swindon. Speed cameras were switched off more than six years, and all the local evidence since has shown that their removal hasn't had an effect on accident statistics."

However, there are talks around other road safety measures.

Mr. Heenan added: "The Council takes road safety seriously, and I have been in discussions with Wiltshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner about alternative measures we can introduce. I want to see video evidence used by the Police in warnings and prosecutions for red light jumping, dangerous driving and in dealing with accidents. I believe this is a smarter, more targeted approach and I hope to see a pilot running in early 2017."

Well, that'll improve road safety, cause more congestion and raise more money. What else would you wish for?
