Mobile Safety Cameras

Most of the enforcement activity carried out by NSRI on Northumbria’s road network is by trained operators in mobile safety camera vans. These vans attend sections of road that have been identified by NSRI as potential or actual collision hotspots where illegal speed is a road safety issue.  Once in place, these vans act in much the same way as a fixed speed camera, however, the difference being that that operator can enforce the speed limit over a wider area (typically around 500 metres), and is also in a position to record other motoring offences, such as using a handheld mobile phone or not wearing a seatbelt.

There are two different types of mobile camera sites: “core” sites and “community speed concern” sites.
