Nine camera sites have been reactivated in Birmingham and Solihull as part of a 21-month evaluation.

They were originally switched off three years ago in a 1m a year money saving exercise.

Birmingham City Council say that their decision to reinstate the nine cameras took into account the number of crashes and casualties around the camera sites.

Obviously they're running a little low on fund in Birmingham City Council, especially after that very expensive law suit that they lost.

So the money's got to come from somewhere so the motorist is an easy target.
