Oxfordshire Speed Cameras Make Over 356000 In One Year

Despite the fact they were turned off in August 2010, Oxfordshire speed cameras have proven their "worth" by making over 356,000 in prosecutions in a single year.

The cameras flashed 5,911 speeding motorists over the course of the year, taking 356,600 from those prosecuted.

A common site for speeding, Botley Road, was named the most prolific speed camera site for the county where fixed cameras caught a total of 651 drivers gaining 39,060 in penalty charges.

This news follows the county's decision to reinstate speed cameras following a temporary shut-down in August 2010. The cameras were brought back this April after the number of deaths which occurred on the roads increased by 50% following the camera closures.

A Thames Valley Police spokesman explained that "all fixed camera sites have been reviewed" and said they would be "subject to regular review" to ensure speed cameras are operating effectively.
