Residents in Coventry have had their request for Average Speed Cameras on three new routes in the city turned down because the council says they do not meet the threshold for action.
The Coventry Telegraph says three separate petitions were raised to the council but none of the roads has enough of a bad safety record to justify the cameras.
It says faded and damaged road signs on will instead be replaced, while a mobile vehicle-activated speed sign will be also be deployed to help reduce speeds.
The council says it must prioritise roads with the highest accident rates when considering new average speed camera routes.
Seven routes in the city do have the Jenoptik average speed systems.
