North Safety Camera Unit announce short term seasonal enforcement.

With many motorists once again looking to travel throughout the North of Scotland, Police Scotland’s 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 Police Scotland’s North Safety Camera Unit says: “We have been working closely with our Road Policing 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, Road Policing North Area Commander says: “Police Scotland, and our Safety Camera Unit, are committed to working with our partners in order to influence driver and road user behaviour and reduce casualties. With the expected increase in tourist travel over the upcoming holiday periods, the implementation of these short term deployment locations are part of a crucial partnership response to improving road safety.”
