Several new speed cameras that were installed in February are now in operation across Glasgow. Located on Great Western Road, Bearsden Road, Crookston Road, and Nitshill Road, the cameras are designed to detect speeding drivers and aim to enhance the levels of speed limit compliance.
Alan Bowater, Safety Camera Unit Manager for the West, said: “Driving at safe speeds has been shown to reduce the risk of road death and injury, enabling more people to make safe and healthy journeys.
"Staying within the speed limit gives drivers enough time to spot and react to hazards on the road, but if an impact was to occur it would be less likely to cause serious injury or a fatality.
"By introducing enforcement at these locations drivers will be influenced to travel at more appropriate speeds and in turn reduce the number of casualties on Scotland’s road as a result.”
Geoff Collins, Deputy Managing Director, Jenoptik UK, added: “Jenoptik has a long history of supporting casualty reduction schemes across Scotland, through the provision of SPECS average speed cameras.
"These new VECTOR SR spot speed cameras build on this experience, providing Police Scotland with the very latest in enforcement technology. We look forward to making these sites safer for residents and road users alike”.
