BAD weather will not stop motorists being caught by new high-technology speed cameras.
New mobile cameras operated from the back of vans on accident- prone stretches of road have the latest laser technology, which means they operate more effectively in low light.
They also work in fog, rain and snow without the beam being refracted by water drops.
This means the mobile speed traps will be out and about over the winter when road conditions are generally more hazardous and surfaces slippery.
The cameras are deployed by West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership and operated by West Yorkshire Police.
The new-style camera - called the TSS Prolaser 3 - emits an incredibly rapid stream of tiny laser beams that bounce off passing vehicles and record their speed in less than the blink of an eye. It has a range of nearly a mile.
Casualty reduction officer Pc Andy Ward said: "This new equipment means we can be more effective at helping reduce collisions and casualties on West Yorkshire's roads."
