Speed camera pledge part of aim to cut car accidents

A number of measures to reduce restrictions on motorists, but at the same time cut car accidents, have been proposed by the Conservatives at their 2009 party conference.

The shadow transport secretary Theresa Villiers pledged to stop any new speed cameras and to force councils and the police to enforce restrictions using other means.

New laws were also suggested to stop motorways being closed for hours after accidents, to highlight the problem of traffic lights staying on red for longer than necessary and to stop ‘rogue' car clampers.

There could also be regulations to stop repeated road works and to allow councils to pilot their own traffic schemes – such as allowing cyclists to turn left on red lights or for traffic lights to be automatically set to amber at night.

Miss Villiers said the proposals would be part of the party's aim to make the UK's roads safer and reduce car accidents and personal injury yet at the same time keeping traffic moving.
