20 drivers a day caught breaking limit

Have your say

MORE than 3300 people have been caught speeding on one of Scotland’s major arterial routes since controversial average speed cameras were installed five months ago.

Figures released at the Scottish Parliament show more than 20 vehicles every day are breaking the 40mph limit on the M90 at Halbeath in Fife, as part of construction work on the new Forth crossing.

It has been claimed the Scottish Government may have generated as much as £200,000 in speeding fines since the work began.

Labour MSP John Park said the figures were “extraordinary” and added that the news would anger those who already view the cameras with suspicion.

SNP MSP Graeme Dey, who lodged the parliamentary question, said the figures showed the speed cameras were doing their job.
