There has been a huge reduction in speeding on Scotland's first urban road that uses average speed cameras.

The cameras, which track motorists over a distance on Old Dalkeith Road, Edinburgh, have just completed their first full year of operation. They catch an average of two drivers per day - this is in stark contrast to the three in every five vehicles caught before the system's installation.

There were six crashes which involved some kind of injury reported between 2013-15, of which three resulted in serious injury or death.

George Henderson, who lives on the affected stretch, said he has seen about seven fatalities on his road. He said: "This was a quiet road until the Royal Infirmary opened up. The cars go along here that fast. It is a blind corner and a bad camber on the far side and that is where the accidents happen - and the bus shelter has been knocked down about six times."

He added: "It has been fantastic since the cameras were installed. You see them putting on the brakes when they get near."

A spokesman for Police Scotland, commented: ""It's clear after the first full year of operation the system has encouraged a significant change in driver behaviour and I would like to personally thank all the drivers who use this route for considering their driving manner and helping to make the road much safer. In the last year nobody has been injured on the section of Old Dalkeith Road covered by the system."
