Two further counties shutting down their wasteful,
dangerous road "safety" partnerships and saving £millions see lower accidents /
2 articles I have found just this month, about
Bristol and Northamptonshire, both shutting down their "safety" partnerships
last year and switching off speed cameras (saving £ millions), and subsequently
seeing reductions in accidents / deaths.
comparing figures from one (or two) years to the next is statistically
meaningless (unless, it seems you are in the "industry", in which case any
reduction while there is a camera in place is optimistically presented as proof
that cameras save lives), the bloodbath predicted by those who's jobs depend on
them simply does not occur.
"The number of accidents has dropped since Bristol speed cameras switched off.
The Avon and Somerset safety camera partnership, which ran the cameras, was
disbanded last year and the fixed cameras were turned off in March."
The number of road deaths in Northamptonshire fell to an all-time low in 2011,
police figures show. The figures, the lowest since records began in 1960,
coincided with the year the county's (road safety partnership was disbanded and)
fixed speed cameras were switched off."
