A number of new speed cameras will go live across south Wales this month to help improve road safety.

From Monday, 26th June, 31 new cameras will begin processing offences. They include a mixture of speed cameras and ‘speed on green’ cameras at traffic lights.

These multi-functional cameras have the ability to capture both red light and speeding offences.

GoSafe, the Wales Road Casualty Reduction Partnership, work with the Highways Authorities in Wales to enforce safety camera schemes.

South Wales Police host the Central Ticket Office who administer offences from these schemes across mid and south Wales.

Due to the advent of digital technology and the demands upon IT departments to install several camera types, significant development and investment in systems was required.

Additional resourcing was approved in the IT staff team to assist with the development work and to bring all these schemes online.

Speed is a major contribution to collisions on our roads. These additional schemes will make our roads safer for everyone and improve the behaviour of the minority of drivers breaking the speed limit.

Why don’t we just go back to having a person in front with a red flag? Nothing to do with safety or the environment, just an excuse to Rob the motorist of more 💰

Totally agree with the comments. There is a lot of business around speed cameras and especially in this periods of time where we are also left the EU the Government is desperate to make some extra money in the name of the law and the health and safety. I would love to participate to one of their meeting where they talking about road safety but I don’t think I will be reaching the end of it with out going to the toilet few times . I’m spending must of my day on the road driving and I can assure speed… Read more »
