News: 125 Casualties x 5 years = 17 Speed Cameras

pocketgpsworld.comThe Yorkshire Evening Post has reported that 17 fixed speed cameras have been installed on a stretch of road that's witnessed 125 casualties in the last five years. Ten people died and 23 people sustained serious injuries over the period.

The new speed cameras have been installed on a West Yorkshire road in an attempt to reduce the large number of accidents between Waterloo, Huddersfield and the Wakefield boundary on the A642 Wakefield Road. It is believed that some of the cameras are dummies.

Councillor David Sheard, Kirklees cabinet member for Regeneration, Environment and Transport is reported as saying: "The safety cameras on Wakefield Road should encourage motorists to drive at a consistent and safe speed on the whole route.

"We considered many options including average speed cameras and fixed safety cameras but decided that average speed cameras would be unsuitable because of the number of junctions and changes in speed limit on this route."
