SafeCam

Suffolk SafeCam operates a number of mobile enforcement vehicles, which are deployed across the county of Suffolk.

Since its introduction in 2003, the Suffolk Safety Camera operation has contributed to the reduction of road casualties and collisions throughout the county.

Proactive speed enforcement only takes place in Suffolk at locations or stretches of road where there is an on-going risk of collisions, based on collision data at each site over the past five years - or where there have been substantiated complaints from local people.

As well as mobile enforcement vehicles, Suffolk has two operational fixed camera sites - on the A140 at Coddenham and A12 at Benhall - which protect cross-over junctions on two busy stretches of road.

Locations where proactive speed enforcement takes place will be reviewed regularly by senior officers.
