A90 goes live with average speed cameras
Average speed cameras are now operational along a 51.5 mile stretch of the A90 between Dundee and Stonehaven, replacing the existing fixed and mobile camera enforcement previously on the route.
The cameras join two other permanent average speed camera sections in Scotland: on the A77 between Symington and Girvan and on more than 98 miles of the A9 between Dunblane and Inverness, which has since seen the number of fatal casualties down by over 37% and serious injury casualties by 45%.
According to Transport Minister Humza Yousaf, more than three in every five vehicles between Dundee and Stonehaven speed with one in five exceeding the limit by over 10mph.
Yousaf said: “Any death on our roads is one too many, and I look forward to seeing similar results on the A90 as we’ve seen on the A77 and A9 in reducing casualties and improving driver behaviour.“
