No speed cameras switched on in Northampton for ten years

A newspaper investigation has revealed that there has not been a single speed camera switched on in Northampton over the last ten years.

The Chronicle and Echo asked West Northamptonshire Council whether there are any traffic light cameras to catch motorists jumping red lights in the town and county, to which the local authority said there is none in operation.

Councillor Phil Larratt, who is responsible for highways at the council, told the paper the traffic light cameras, along with yellow-box speed cameras, were turned off in Northamptonshire in 2011.

He says five of the camera housings have been left in position to act as a deterrent but are not switched on.
