Whatever your feelings are on speed cameras it’s important to know where they are in Huddersfield, Kirklees and Calderdale.
Fixed speed cameras are usually in place for a good reason; the roads they are on have previously had a large number of serious injuries and a higher than average number of fatalities.
Some motorists may moan that they’re a ‘money making scheme’ but evidence suggests speed cameras are an effective way of reducing road accidents.
Regardless, knowing where fixed speed cameras are can reduce the likelihood of an accident and it can prevent you ending up with a fine, points on your driving licence and, in severe cases, a driving ban.
Information comes from the West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership.
