112,000 drivers given penalty notices in 12 months because of the cameras
Increase due to 'grey cameras' on motorways with variable speed limits
Critics say the measures are used to catch out drivers and make money
Numbers of drivers fined will rise as system is extended across the country

OK ,it's from the daily wail, but there's a mention of a FOI from the Times.

There has sadly been a massive roll out of cameras over recent years yet none of it making road safety better in any way. :(

IS it all about road safety, or more about keeping the fund for retired Traffic Police officers (AKA SAC ), with funds to stop stacks of folks ending up on the dole?
