Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Safety Camera Partnership have this week begun switching their new red light cameras on.
However, these red light cameras are different from previous ones…
Previously, red light cameras were designed — as the name suggests — to catch Drivers jumping red lights…
However the new versions being installed are *also* Speed Cameras!
The new cameras have been on trial around the UK for a few months now, but are now being rolled out.
They’re called “speed on green” cameras and they’re designed to catch both Drivers who jump a red light *and/or* exceed the speed limit when the lights are green!
The first camera to get switched on (this week) is on the busy A563 Glenhills Way in Leicester.
There are two other cameras due to be switched (on the A5460 and A6) in the coming weeks.
These will be followed by another 147 cameras in the near future in this area alone.
I strongly suggest all BTST Members treat traffic lights with a red light camera as if they are a Speed Camera from now on…
All the best,
P.S. We’re making good progress with the development of “TALEX 3”.
We’re doing it right rather than fast so I don’t want to make any predictions on when it will be ready yet, but lets just say it’s looking good!
