Average speed cameras seem to be springing up all over the UK at the rate of knots. The latest is the seventh of eight routes across Lancashire to go live.

A new scheme on the A583 Blackpool Road will hit the roads from Tuesday 6 March.

The cameras will be enforced following the installation between Wrea Green roundabout, through Kirkham bypass to Newton-with-Scales, west of Clifton.

The Lancashire Road Safety Partnership (LRSP) gave the go ahead for the scheme in 2016 and in January 2017 it announced the chosen routes in a bid to reduce road casualties and collisions.

The Partnership decided to adopt the system of using average speed cameras as motorist compliance has consistently improved on a variety of road types using the system in other parts of the UK.

The cameras will use number plate recognition technology to detect vehicles and calculate their average speed by measuring the time taken to travel between fixed points of a known distance apart. Average speed check signage will be used to inform drivers that they are entering an average speed control zone.

There will be sanctions for anyone detected breaching the speed limits. Where eligible, they will be given the opportunity to attend a speed awareness course to learn about the dangers of speeding, accept a conditional offer of a fixed penalty (currently 100 and 3 penalty points), or for higher speeds the matter may be referred to court.

These type of cameras are lucrative because drivers don't realise how they work.

Whilst they drag in funds they will continue to be installed. I wonder if the resultant speed awareness course includes how these cameras work?

The sooner drivers do realise, the more stretches of road that will be slightly safer and more pleasant to drive along.
