Myth buster and FAQs
It’s all a big money making scheme
We don’t want your money: Average speed cameras on the A90 will result in better speed limit compliance, fewer camera detections and ultimately fewer fines for road users. Since 2007, any fines generated by safety cameras, regardless of type, have been returned to HM Treasury.
Average speed cameras disrupt journey times
The speed limits are not being changed. Journey times will become more reliable as the cameras reduce the number of incidents that require closures.
Average speed cameras make driving more difficult
Average speed cameras enforce the existing speed limits. Driving under an average speed camera system places no additional requirements on road users outside of those set out in the Highway Code.
