Paul Smith, founder of the anti-camera campaign Safe Speed, welcomed the initiative and called on other partnerships to follow suit.

“This is probably the largest removal that we’ve seen,” he said. “We hope this is the beginning of the end for cameras and it’s about time.

“Road safety in the UK will not improve until the authorities have come to terms with the fact that speed cameras don’t make the roads safer.

“After £700 million pounds in speed camera fines, deaths are going up.”

The partnership, which includes the West Midlands Police and seven local authorities, is also planning to reduce the use of 50 cameras where there have been no injuries in a traffic collision for three years.




Thinking about it there are two cameras on the A5 near Mira, the west bound one is now hidden behind a tree that has overgrown, may be we should have a "grass up a camera" campaign to report illegal sites.
