Speed cameras cause increase in road fatalities

England has suspended the installation of additional speed cameras, due to an increase in fatalities where they were installed. The reason? Because people are focused on their speedometers instead of on the road. Go figure.

According to the MCN figures...Hertfordshire saw a 24 per cent rise in speed camera numbers between 2003 and 2004. In the same period, road fatalities rose by 34 per cent.
