North Safety Camera Unit announce short term seasonal enforcement.

With many motorists once again looking to travel throughout the North of Scotland, the North Safety Camera Unit is announcing a number of seasonal short term deployments. These locations have been selected with the aim of improving driver behaviour by encouraging motorists to slow down and drive within the speed limits, in areas where many may be unfamiliar with the roads.

Eric Dunion Unit Manager of the North Safety Camera Unit says: “We have been working closely with our Police Scotland colleagues and Local Authorities to identify locations where we anticipate an increase in traffic due to the increased number of visitors for either holidays or day trips. These locations would not normally meet the criteria to become a permanent location but the short term deployment scheme gives us the flexibility to be at locations where we believe there will be a change in traffic behaviour. We will be enforcing at the locations and aim to encourage motorists to improve their driver behaviour and adhere to the speed limits in place. Speed limits are in place for the safety of all road users.”

Chief Inspector Andy Barclay of Roads Policing North says: “With the expected increase in tourist travel over the coming months I am delighted that the North Safety Camera Unit is taking the strategic approach of implementing short term deployment locations. Road Policing work closely with the Safety Camera Unit to make our roads safer for all road users.”
