Average Speed Cameras

Average speed cameras are currently not deployed by NSRI; however they are presently being used by Highways England on the A1 Western Bypass in Gateshead to enforce the temporarily lowered speed limit during the road works.  These cameras work by recording the time that a vehicle takes to travel between two cameras a set distance apart on the road.  By dividing the distance by the time taken, the camera calculates the average speed that the vehicle has travelled on the section of road, and if this is above the enforcement threshold then the driver is judged to have committed an offence.
