Crash injuries drop significantly after average speed camera installation

New figures show that the number of injuries from crashes on four roads in Coventry with average speed cameras have fallen 88% since the systems’ introduction.

CoventryLive reports that speeds along the enforced roads have also dropped more than 40%.

Two of the camera schemes from Jenoptik were added in January 2019, the others in 2020.

Cllr Gavin Lloyd, deputy cabinet member for city services, told the site, “Speeding is a massive issue and there isn’t a ward that isn’t affected by this. The KSI’s [the number of people killed or seriously injured] speak for themselves from previous years. There’s talk in social media and newspapers that the reason we do this is as a money making scheme. It’s not. It’s 100 per cent down to the safety of the citizens of Coventry.”
