Speed Cameras Not Needed to Improve Safety
One of the top ten most improved roads in the UK for safety between 2000 and 2005 was a stretch of the A272 near West Grinstead. The number of crashes was reduced by 71% without resorting to the despised speed cameras.
The common sense measures uses to achieve this improvement included cutting back overgrown hedges, repainting road markings, resurfacing, and putting up new signs.
