At the beginning of last month (February), the Highways Agency announced proposals, which if approved, will see speed cameras erected on certain stretches of the UK motorway system.
The proposals outlined by the Highways Agency are aimed at not only preventing motorists from exceeding the 70 MPH speed limit on motorways, but according to the agency will also help prevent traffic jams, whilst improving the flow of traffic by carefully controlling speed.
It has also been suggested by the Agency that the cameras – which are reportedly set to be grey, rather than the traditional bright yellow – will help open up hard shoulders to traffic as and when necessary.
Should the proposals be approved, the cameras are reportedly set to be introduced on sections of the M25, M6 and the M1, with reports indicating that cameras could be erected between junctions 28 and 31, and junctions 32 to 35a of the M1 in South Yorkshire.
