WISHART WELCOMES SAFETY BENEFIT FROM A9 CAMERAS
Posted on the
Welcoming the publication of figures showing that accident and casualty rates on the A9 have fallen dramatically in the first year of operation of the new average speed cameras, Pete Wishart MP, Member of Parliament for Perth & North Perthshire, said:
“This really is good news, I am delighted that the introduction of the average speed cameras has had such an immediate and demonstrable effect.
“I hope that those who spoke out so vociferously against these cameras will now accept that they were wrong and recognise the important role that this technology is now playing in preventing accidents and – most importantly of all – saving lives.”
