Ten year anniversary of leading
speed camera research report
This month marks 10 years since one of the UK’s most powerful speed camera research documents was published.
In November 2010, the RAC Foundation published a report – Effectiveness of Speed Cameras – by Professor Richard Allsop OBE, of University College London, which reviewed the impact that the technology had on road safety.
His report concluded that, at the time, speed cameras cut the number of people being killed or seriously injured on Britain’s roads each year by about 800.
In June 2013, the Foundation published further work (updated in November 2013 and March 2019) by Professor Allsop, in which the estimate was revised, taking into account revised techniques and the general downward trend in road deaths: http://www.racfoundation.org/research/safety/effectiveness-of-speed-cameras
