Speed camera funding scrapped (UK)

Fixed speed cameras will no longer be funded by the Government.

Junior transport minister, Mike Penning announced that councils will have to use their own cash to install new cameras from now on. He added that local authorities will be encouraged to consider alternative safety measures before investing in new cameras.

"The public must be confident speed cameras are there for road safety – not as a cash cow. Under this Government it will not be so," said Penning.

"Central Government will not put any more money in."
