A new car finance report undertaken by engineer Dave Finney in the Thames Valley area shows that speed cameras do not prevent road accidents. And according to the respected Association of British Drivers (ABD), it means the speed camera strategy an “abysmal failure”.
 
The independent report, taken out by Dave Finney, concludes that 'speed cameras (in the Thames Valley area) have not made any impact in preventing road traffic collisions.'
 
The report includes all of the 212 Gatso cameras and 105 mobile speed check sites in the aforementioned area. So where to go from here? Will the government stop producing speed cameras as more and more reports conclude the same agreement? 
 
We doubt it.
