Safety cameras continue to reduce fatalities

North East Safety Camera Partnership (NESCAMP) welcomes the publication of the Key Scottish Safety Camera Statistics for 2011 by the Scottish Government.

The latest annual report confirms the trends in personal injury crash reduction as seen in previous
bulletins.

It shows the number of people being killed or seriously injured at safety camera sites throughout Scotland, for the last three years, is on average 68% lower following camera enforcement.

Collisions involving personal injuries have also reduced as an average from 1,054 to 547 at these sites,
a decrease of 48%.

NESCAMP Manager, Graham Shanks commented that the figures show the “highly visible deterrent effect of safety cameras.”
