Safety cameras are used across Scotland as part of an ongoing road safety strategy to reduce the number and severity of road casualties.
The Partnership is funded by a Scottish Government grant, through the Scottish Safety Camera Programme, and all revenue from fines is paid to HM Treasury.
Andy Jones, Fife Safety Camera Partnership manager, explains: “The Partnership operates an intelligence-led casualty reduction strategy that is responsive to information collected from ‘speed monitoring’ and ‘casualty and collision’ data.
“By deploying mobile safety camera units at sites that have accrued a casualty and collision history, the Partnership aims to encourage drivers to slow down.
“Inappropriate speed is recognised as a factor in a significant number of road deaths, and young and inexperienced drivers are particularly at risk.
“The New Drivers Act is a sort of two-year probationary period and we want to encourage new and young drivers to build their driving experience in a safe way by slowing down.”
Remember – three penalty points and a £60 fine is the minimum penalty for a speeding offence.
Slow down and help make Fife safer.
