Only 10 operational speed cameras in Derbyshire

Only 10 speed cameras now remain operating in the whole of Derbyshire after further cuts. Councils’ road safety funds were cut nationally last year by the government, with no funding for new cameras.

A Derbyshire Road Safety spokeswoman said “the cameras are moved between the county’s box sites outside of Derby city – of which there are 97 – depending on which roads are considered the most dangerous.”, adding “We use a mixture of cameras fitted into vans and cameras that fit into those yellow boxes by the side of the road.”

This of course leaves motorists guessing as to which cameras are working and which are not.
