A new onslaught of speed cameras are set to be introduced to UK motorways in order to prevent drivers from travelling at speeds in excess of 70 mph.
The new devices, known as “Stealth Cameras” will be breaking the mould, with a subtle grey design rather than the traditional yellow, and will be placed along so-called “Smart motorways“.
The move of adding speed cameras to motorways has come under attack from various driving-related groups, who suggest that the introduction of such cameras is more about increasing revenue than encouraging safety in driving.
As the cameras are less visible than their previous counterparts, many argue that they will not function as a deterrent, but instead are only being introduced to boost profits through a subsequent increase in fines of speeding drivers.
What are your thoughts? Is this a new motorway menace, or are more speed cameras a godsend?
