The locations of several speed cameras have been revealed as a clamp-down on speeders in East Lancashire continues.

One aim of the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership is to improve driver behaviour by helping motorists drive at an appropriate and safe speed within designated limits, so safety camera enforcement vehicles operate across Lancashire seven days a week.

Cameras use laser technology to detect speeding motorists but they are also used to identify other offences, including drivers not in proper control or not wearing a seat belt.

All the mobile sites are risk assessed for safety and officers vary how often they attend different locations with sites based on casualty data, known speeding concerns, where a report has been made directly by a member of the public concerned about speeding issues in their area along with any location that has a fixed roadside camera.

If you are a law-abiding citizen who sticks to the rules of the road, you have nothing to worry about.
