Safety cameras

Our mobile safety camera vehicles aim to reduce the number of collisions, deaths and serious injuries on our roads.

The information regarding camera enforcement and the subsequent legal process are continually being reviewed. We have a document available below which provides answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. If you have any questions regarding an alleged offence which is not covered by the information on this website you are advised to seek independent legal advice.

Vehicle Classifications and Speed Restrictions

As a result of the numerous comments in regards to our Facebook post on the 26th May 2017 about the speed restrictions applicable to light goods vehicles, we would like to provide some clarification about how a vehicle is defined in law as this may assist you when you are trying to find our which speed limit applies to your specific van.

Please see the attached word document below “Vehicle Classifications and Speed Restrictions” for further details.

Road safety camera – data log

You can download the Excel spreadsheet below, which contains all of the data we record at each location. In order to comply with data protection we have only removed the personal information. The data is posted fortnightly for a 2 week period.

Data log – Key

  • Site type – CC –Community Concern-Sites identified through the speed management protocol as being of community concern and suitable for enforcement.
  • Site type – MC – Route used by motorcycles that has a high incidence of collisions and anti social behavior.
  • Site type – KSIR – Sites which are on Strategic Routes where people have been killed or seriously injured.
  • Site type – BIKE – Sites specifically for the Safety Camera Bike to enforce. The bike can enforce at any of the Van sites in addition to these Bike sites.
  • Site type – DIST – Any distraction offence such as not wearing a seat belt or use of a mobile whilst driving
  • Site Name – Road name and place where the camera was located.
  • Area – Local council district area.
  • Time on – The time the safety camera began recording.
  • Time off – The time the safety camera finished recording.
  • Total time – The time the safety camera van was at a location.
  • RFS – High end offender who will be summonsed directly to court.
  • Cond Offer – A violation that can be dealt with by way of a £100 fixed fine and 3 penalty points.
  • SAC – A violation that can be dealt with by the attendance at a speed awareness education course.
