Recent figures from the Kent and Medway Safety Camera Partnership, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, have claimed that the number of road fatalities and serious collisions have been reduced by 72% at speed camera sites in Kent over just three years.

The figures, which were calculated for the period between 2009 and 2011, set out to show how the number of incidences dropped significantly during this period, coinciding with the introduction of speed cameras at crash hot-spots.
