New Mobile Speed Cameras on the A10 halt Speeding Motorists
The new mobile average speed cameras on the A10 have already had a significant impact on drivers using the road, just a few months after they were installed.

The cameras were deployed in early July following a successful bid to the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Road Safety Fund and the Hertfordshire Police, to address recurring incidents of groups of drivers meeting to race on the road between Broxbourne and Cheshunt. A total of 77 drivers have been caught speeding and no incidents of racing have been reported since.

Inspector for Broxbourne Roy Stammers said: “The cameras have made a real difference to the safety of road users along this stretch of road and to the quality of life for those residents living nearby.

“Racers congregating and causing noise and driving dangerously around the A10 the Brookfield area have reduced significantly and the cameras help to manage the speed of drivers and make the road safer.”

The Police and Crime Commissioner, David Lloyd said: “I am very pleased with these initial reports from the new A10 cameras and believe that the early signs are very encouraging.”

“As the first project funded by the Road Safety Fund, the A10 camera bid demonstrates how the fund can empower local communities and help them to identify and address road safety issues of most concern to them. These cameras have the potential to make a real difference to the quality of life and safety of local residents and drivers.”

Using the surplus generated from motorists who have committed driving offences and been ordered to pay court costs following prosecution, or who have attended educational diversionary courses (such as speed awareness course), the Road Safety Fund will seek to fund new and innovative ways of improving road safety.

Mr Lloyd added: “My Road Safety Fund will deliver similar projects across the county, with local people taking the opportunity to tackle the issues that pose a real danger, or make lives more difficult, by making our roads safer.”
