"20 drivers a day caught breaking limit"(7 posts)
Only 20 a day? That is a pretty stunning success for the usefulness of the cameras IMO.
If all 64,500 journeys a day over the bridge last month went through the roadworks, that's a speeding rate of 0.03%. I imagine the effective rate will be even less with intra-Fife traffic added on to that number.
Just shows they're doing their job - and well. Still a pain in the arse to drive thru at 5.30am tho ^^^ :)
am at work driving the lorry, av speed cameras, 40mph................RESULT ! am now taking longer and earning more money ! yeehaw !
Tooot Tooot !
LBP have reported even better figures - with the higher number of speeders being only recorded over Easter and only three tickets a day issued over a normal working week! I don't think now even the harshest critics of cameras can call the scheme anything but a great success at moderating speed :-]
The speed cameras are indeed working on the stretch they police, however...
I often play a little game when driving home from the Ingleston P&R, called, count the speeder.
On the Fife side of the A90, from where the 40 limit starts at the North Queensferry junction to where I come off at Admiralty I count an average of 13 cars passing me at various speeds.
It is a steady stream of cars all breaking the limit in the short time I'm on that stretch. Off course you can see all of the brake lights go on at the next junction at Dunfermline where the cameras actually start.
The cameras need to be much closer to where the limit actually starts on the Fife side!
I've had that myself, including artics with the foot on the floor wanting past! They do either need to amend the signs to be farther back or the cameras farther forward.
