Rise in public support for speed cameras

The latest British Social Attitudes Survey has found that support for speed cameras has risen significantly over the past decade, in spite of the belief they are money-making devices.
Agreement with the proposition that ‘speed cameras save lives’ rose from a low of 42% in 2005 to 56% in 2016, while disagreement fell from 31% to a low of 19% over the same time.
Nearly half of respondents said speed cameras are mostly there to make money but only a third (32%) said that there are too many, the lowest point in the last decade.
