Tories hate speed cameras

First Swindon, now perhaps Bournemouth.

Bournemouth councillors are to consider the controversial idea of scrapping speed cameras in the town – though any such plan would not affect cameras outside the borough.

A council committee will look at whether the 20 fixed speed cameras in the town do a good job in reducing vehicle speeds and preventing collisions.

The driving force behind this is Charminster Conservative councillor Mark Anderson.
