North East drivers hate speed cameras

Have your say

SUPPORT for speed cameras is lowest in the North East, a report has revealed.

The new survey, carried out by the Institute of Advanced Motorists, found a total of 67 per cent of drivers across the North East backed the use of speed cameras.

This figure compares with the national average of 79 per cent.

The report discovered the most supportive region was London, with 85 per cent of drivers giving speed cameras the thumbs up.

The survey also found that across the North East, 35 per cent of those quizzed said they felt speed cameras were used to raise extra funds for the Government rather than being used as a measure to prevent people from speeding.
