Oxfordshire conducts secret speed camera experiment

When Oxfordshire switched off its fixed speed cameras due to budget cuts, what the council kept secret was that two of them were left running.

It was an experiment to see if drivers would obey the speed limit if there was no threat of a ticket.

The number of people caught on camera did go up, although no-one was prosecuted.

Richard Westcott reports.
