Speed cameras only part of the picture, says Living Streets. Speed reductions are also needed.

Today,  the RAC released analysis of data[1] for fixed speed cameras in nine areas, showing a reduction of fatalities and serious injuries.

Living Streets’ Chief Executive, Tony Armstrong commented:
“The evidence is clear that slower speeds reduce fatalities and make our streets a safer and more walking friendly environment.  Reducing speed limits to 20 mph on the roads where we live, work and shop is the most effective measure to save the lives of the most vulnerable road users, pedestrians. 

"Speed cameras are a useful tool in supporting lower speeds, and have been shown to save lives, but we should not rely on cameras alone to improve safety and should also promote traffic calming measures and improved street design to improve the quality of the public realm.”
 
Living Streets is the national charity that stands up for pedestrians. With our supporters we work to create safe, attractive and enjoyable streets, where people want to walk.
