It’s reported average speed cameras could be installed along two of Hampshire’s main roads in order to improve safety and reduce the number of speeding drivers and motorcyclists.

The Petersfield Post reports that proposals to install the devices along the A32 and A272 have been discussed by MP George Hollingbery and the new Police and Crime Commissioner of Hampshire, Mike Lane.

It says Mr Lane, who made a manifesto commitment to address the issue of speeding, will find match funding for the devices and also intends to ask parish councils in the affected areas to suggest where the cameras are needed most.

The report quotes the MP as saying, “the installing of average speed cameras, forcing motorcyclists to slow down along large sections of the road rather than just when the fixed point camera is there, will be a big improvement.”
