Sets out our response to the government's response to the Transport, Local Government and the Regions Committee's report.
This is the government reply to the Transport, Local Government and the Regions Committee’s ninth report on road traffic speed.
The committee found that the level of road casualties receives far too little national attention from the media and that there has been slow progress on the implementation of the government’s road safety strategy. One criticism was of the siting of speed cameras; the department response refers to the safety camera netting off scheme’s handbook which provides guidance for the optimal siting of speed cameras. The government points out the legislative problems which would be raised, if safety cameras were to be made mandatory on local authorities and the police.
