Road Safety Act 2006 * 2006 c. 49 * Payments for road safety * Section 2
The section of changes to the 2006 Road Safety Act that changes camera funding : (You need to link to the original Rd Safety Act 2006 enacted here) So from the original :
Legislation by former Gov wrote:
Graduated fixed penalties

(1)The Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 (c. 53) is amended as follows.
(2)In section 53 (amount of fixed penalty), for subsections (2) and (3) substitute—
“(2)Any order made under subsection (1)(a) above in relation to an offence may make provision for the fixed penalty for the offence to be different depending on the circumstances, including (in particular)—
(a)the nature of the contravention or failure constituting the offence,
(b)how serious it is,
(c)the area, or sort of place, where it takes place, and
(d)whether the offender appears to have committed any offence or offences of a description specified in the order during a period so specified.”

(3)In section 84(2) (regulations about surcharge notices), for paragraphs (b) and (c) substitute “and
b)the amount of the penalty stated in the offer is less than the fixed penalty applicable in the circumstances,”.

Legislation by Gov wrote:
Application of surplus income from safety camera enforcementE+W+S+N.I.
(1)Section 38 of the Vehicles (Crime) Act 2001 (c. 3) (unified power for Secretary of State to fund speed cameras etc.) is amended as follows.
(2)In subsections (3) and (4), for “this section” substitute “ subsection (1)”.
(3)After subsection (4) insert—
“(4A)The Secretary of State may by regulations make provision for making to public authorities for road safety purposes payments calculated by reference to any amount by which—
(a)the amount of the sums paid into the Consolidated Fund in consequence of the commission of offences to which subsection (2) applies and which are detected by cameras, exceeds
(b)the amount of any payments made under subsection (1).”

To distract a little I also noticed this Original section too - also under alteration and not yet updated -which appears to imply if I am reading it correctly that providers need to advise authorities of offences !
