North East Lincolnshire has decided not to cuts its funding for Safer Roads Humber and the Scottish government has said that the country’s 500 cameras will remain in place. In addition, some authorities are switching from fixed to mobile cameras and some communities are still winning campaigns to introduce new cameras – Holt and Hallow in Worcestershire being the latest. But these stand alone authorities may well be in a minority, as larger Councils like Norfolk are still voting to close them down.
