MORE speed cameras could be set up on West Yorkshire roads.
Officials are hoping to get extra cash from the Government to use both fixed and mobile cameras to improve safety.
And they hope that yesterday's news that the county has the best safety record in the country will help their case.
The West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership, which monitors the county's 160 cameras, is awaiting news on a funding bid.
They have asked the Department for Transport for more money to bring in more cameras - including mobile ones.
They claim it will help reduce deaths and injury accidents still further.
According to a Government report published yesterday, casualties have fallen by 72% on roads in West Yorkshire where speed cameras have been introduced.
It was the best result in the country.
Since 2001 the number of road deaths in West Yorkshire has also fallen from an annual average of 144 to 102.
"It's great news that West Yorkshire is one of the best performing areas in the country and shows that speed cameras can have a real impact," said Steve Thornton, Chair of the West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership, which operates the cameras.
"Some cameras were installed more than three years ago in Kirklees but other sites, such as Bradford, Wakefield and Leeds, have not been in operation for very long and we will continue to monitor these to see what effect they are having.
"The findings announced yesterday have reinforced the Partnership's view that controlling road speeds is essential if we are to reduce deaths and injuries and improve the quality of life for local people.
"Their lives can often be blighted by traffic volumes and speeding motorists."
