Tracking Speeders Between Speed Cams

The Swedish Road Administration has outlined plans to introduce new speed cameras which can measure the speed a car is travelling between each camera.

The controversial proposal was announced by road safety director Claes Tingvall, who told Swedish Radio News that this method could stop drivers increasing their speed straight after they drive past a camera.

Currently, a speed camera can only photograph a motorist breaking the speed limit the moment they pass the camera.

An enquiry is under way with the Swedish police to investigate the legality of the new proposal - a question mark hangs over how easy it will be to prove the same person has been driving the car throughout the entire stretch of road between cameras.

But Claes Tingvall believes the idea will come into force within a few years.
