Oxfordshire Speed Camera Return Backed By Accident Expert

Authorities 'To Reactivate The Technology'


A serious injury lawyer at Irwin Mitchell has welcomed reports that fixed speed cameras are to be brought back into use in Oxfordshire.

Stephen Nye, who specialises in cases related to road traffic accidents, said it was positive news that the region’s council are reportedly planning to go back on a decision taken in August to switch off the cameras.

The decision to deactivate them was taken when Oxfordshire County Council withdrew funding for the Thames Valley Safer Roads Partnership. However, both parties have now confirmed they are close to agreeing a deal which will ensure the technology is in use.

Commenting on the plan, Stephen Nye said: “There is no doubt that speed cameras play a key role in both preventing injuries and saving lives, so it is welcome news that the technology is set to be brought back into use.

“So many of the cases I deal with highlight the traumatic, life-changing impact that road traffic accidents can have on those involved.

“Because of this, it is vital that any measures designed to improve road safety and protect the wellbeing of drivers are taken advantage of.”
