Stopping the March of the Fixed Speed Camera
Tuesday, October 6 2009
Theresa Villiers is to announce a radical plan to improve road safety and end the relentless expansion of fixed speed cameras.

The Shadow Transport Secretary will also announce a package of measures to tackle unnecessary disruption on our roads and the daily hassle faced by drivers, including:

* Taking a tough line over road works
* Cracking down on rogue clampers
* Shortening the time it takes to re-open motorways after incidents occur
* Freeing up data on the phasing of traffic lights
* Freeing councils to pilot innovative schemes, like turn left on red for cyclists

Theresa said that Labour’s dependence on fixed speed cameras has "blinded them to the effectiveness of the alternatives", and added:

"A Conservative Government will focus on tackling the congestion that is costing the economy billions, and the resulting hassle that has made travelling in the UK so grim. We will empower road users with the information they need to understand and influence the decisions which affect their daily commute."
