A90 to get average speed cameras between Dundee and Stonehaven
Average speed cameras are to go live on the A90 between Dundee and Stonehaven from this autumn.
The scheme will go live in the autumn, replacing the existing fixed and mobile camera enforcement currently on the route, and will join two other permanent average speed camera sections in Scotland: on the A77 between Symington and Girvan and on the A9 between Dunblane and Inverness.
The cameras are being introduced to cut down on the number of accidents and improve journey time reliability.
Scotland’s Transport Minister, Humza Yousaf said: “We already know from our experience with the A9 that average speed cameras encourage better driver behaviour, with the number of fatal casualties down by over 37% and serious injury casualties by 45%. We can also expect to see improved journey time reliability and reductions in the number of people getting points on their licence and a fine.
“There have been 60 fatal and serious collisions on the A90 between Dundee and Stonehaven in the last five years alone. 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.”
