DRIVERS using the M62 in West Yorkshire could be zapped by a speed camera next year.
Speed camera bosses hope to introduce a special vantage point ramp to park up a van and a speed camera on the busy motorway.
The move, by the local Casualty Reduction Partnership, will follow moves by the Wiltshire Safety Camera Partnership.
The first speed cameras targeting drivers doing more than 70mph will be switched on along the M4 in Wiltshire.
All speeding motorists - not just those well above the limit - along a 40-mile stretch of the road between Bath and Hungerford, will face £60 fines and three points if snapped.
But the move in West Yorkshire will only affect speeding drivers between Junctions 33 and 34, near Pontefract.
The West Yorkshire partnership's spokesman, Phillip Gwynne, said the move was being made because of the number of people killed or seriously injured on that section of road.
He added: "We are looking at ways of being able to monitor traffic, because we can't park a van on the bridge which crosses the M62 in a way in which will enable us to monitor the motorway.
"We also can't put a van on the motorway."
Mr Gwynne said one idea was to use specially created vantage points, similar to those used by police motorway patrols.
He added: "We have no other plans for using cameras on any other stretch of motorway."
