News that grey speed cameras are being deployed on Britain’s motorways have brought a sharp response from Warley MP, and previous Transport Minister, John Spellar.
John Spellar MP said:-
“When I was Transport Minister I ordered that speed cameras should be painted a clearly visible yellow. The aim should be to adjust behaviour not to catch out motorists. It seems these are being sneaked into the managed motorway network. I instigated this programme of hard shoulder running which gives a big boost to capacity and better journeys. However, too often speed restrictions are left on when the congestion has passed. The police and Highways Agency should get their act together and stop fleecing the hard pressed motorists and should be told to return to painting cameras yellow.”
