The survey, by insurance company Touchline, also showed that 80 per cent of motorists admitted exceeding the speed limit. Only 30 per cent said they had been knowingly caught by a speed camera while 40 per cent said they only drove within the limit when warned that they were approaching a camera and 60 per cent made a mental note of where the cameras were so they could alter their speed accordingly.Reuse content
Speed cameras are failing both to deter over-fast motorists and to punish them properly, says a survey published today. Only 20 per cent of drivers said the risk of being caught by a speed camera made them drive within the speed limit at all times. Of those caught by a speed camera, only one in 10 received a fine or had penalty points on their licence.
