Speed cameras here to stay in Welwyn Hatfield

SPEED cameras will NOT be axed from Welwyn Hatfield’s roads, despite claims they do not help reduce accidents.

Herts County Council this week confirmed the cameras would stay, following a national newspaper report in which Cllr Rod Bluh, the leader of Swindon Borough Council, said his authority had taken the “right step” in scrapping them.

A spokeswoman for the county council said: “While we’re always keen to learn from the experiences of our colleagues at other councils, at the moment we’re confident that safety cameras are working for Hertfordshire.”
