News: Speed Camera Support Declines

pocketgpsworld.comThe UK Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) have collated results from polls conducted by NOP for the AA since 1999 about attitudes to speed cameras. They report that over the last 10 years there has been a marked decline in their popularity.

Back in 1999, speed cameras had a huge overall approval rating of 92 per cent compared with just 75 per cent in 2009.

According to the data, support from men has fallen quite dramatically from 83 per cent in 2002 to 66 per cent in 2009. The research also shows that women are more supportive of speed cameras than men. The IAM speculate that because women commit fewer traffic offences than men, they may see cameras as less of a threat.
