Isle of Wight councillors to look again at average speed cameras

The Isle of Wight Council’s Alliance Group has voted to examine the cost and effectiveness of average speed cameras for the Island.

Isle of Wight Radio says that this follows a change of control in the council after the election in May. Previously the council, when it was Conservative-led, had set aside £300,000 to buy two sets of cameras on the island in order to sort out what it called ‘horrendous’ speeding issues.

At a full council meeting, councillors decided to amend the motion and develop a business case to investigate the costs and effectiveness of the cameras.
