Many of us who have served in the Bermuda Police will have first-hand knowledge of the toll taken on our roads by impaired driving and speeding, and our members who now live abroad may have had more recent experience of the success or otherwise of speed cameras in other jurisdictions.
We would be pleased to hear from you if you have any input about the use of speed cameras in particular jurisdictions.
