Speed cameras will triple by the end of 2020


More speed cameras billed as “speed cameras of the future” are going to be installed on our roads between now and the end of next year, according to a government spokesperson.

The cameras monitor speed, but they can also monitor whether you are holding a phone, wearing a seatbelt, going through a red light, driving too close to the car in front, and undertaking on the right.

1,200 of these cameras are going to be installed within a year, and will be installed on four metre high platforms, making them harder to vandalise. Decoy machines will also be installed.

Up to three quarters of the countries speed cameras have been vandalised since the start of the gilets jaunes movement.
