Speeding fines used to buy nine new speed camera vans

Speeding fines incurred on NI roads are to be reinvested by the Northern Ireland Road Safety Partnership (NIRSP).

The fines have contributed to a £500,000 purchase of nine new speed camera vans.

The vans, equipped with the latest speed-detection technology, will be patrolling accident hot spots on NI roads within the next few weeks.

NIRSP announced that the investment will accompany a road safety campaign.

Assistant Chief Constable Duncan McCausland, Chair of NIRSP, warned that speeding is still the biggest danger on NI roads: "Speed kills, and it is important to emphasise this point and to remind all drivers that there are consequences to breaking the speed limit and driving in a manner that does not ensure the safety of all road users."

Environment Minister Edwin Poots welcomed the investment, hoping the new vans would "encourage drivers to drive at a reasonable and sensible speed."

"Adding a few extra minutes to your journey could make a big difference in saving a life - maybe yours," he added.

It is so sad that we hear this same old repeated nonsense all over the World!
Same apparent reasons, to apparently solve the same Global problem!
Just follow the money!
Makes you wonder how we had the safest roads in the World for decades doesn't it !
