Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership has operated a network of safety cameras for over 20 years. The partnership currently has 29 fixed camera sites and seven average speed camera systems, with a further average speed camera system expected to be installed in 2020/21.

A review of the county’s safety camera operations in 2018 highlighted significant reduction in number of fatal and serious collisions in the vicinity of fixed camera sites of 29-51%.
