These are the speed cameras in the Sunderland area which catch most drivers
Like most parts of the UK, the city is covered by a network of fixed point, mobile, red light and speed concern cameras in a bid to keep its roads safe.
The Northumbria Safer Roads Initiative, a partnership between Northumbria Police and the local authorities, publishes various statistics around their use. These are the cameras which were activated most in 2017 (the latest year for which figures are available). Most of the drivers received fixed penalty notice fines. Note: photos are to illustrate the routes where the cameras are, not precise their locations.
