Love them or loathe them, speed cameras have become a mainstay in British motoring and the yellow boxes can spark fear in the hearts of drivers.
Speed cameras not only punish motorists through fines and bans, but they also act as a deterrent to keep people within the limits.
We asked you if you could place a speed camera anywhere in Stoke-on-Trent where would you place and why.
This is your response…
Lee Jones: “Talke Road in Red Street, idiots speed up after The Crown and also continue speeding coming from Talke into Red Street even though the limit changes to 30. It’s bloody ridiculous sometimes bearing in mind you have a community centre and a nursing home there.”
Sam White: “Leek New Road between Greenways school and the Scout hut in Stockton Brook. “
“The speed people have been going along there recently is so dangerous. They drive through a speed camera earlier along the road then absolutely gun it along the straight.”
Vicky Louise Thorpe: “Duke Street, Fenton. I’m honestly surprised nobody has been killed already! The speed that some cars go up and down is insane….it’s not even a straight road!”
Kerry Carr: “Abbey Lane. They use it as a rat run between Werrington Road and Leek road. There’s two schools at one end of the lane, a church and children’s football pitches and play areas near the middle. “
“I don’t think anyone knows the speed limit on the road, nor what side to drive on. The amount of accidents that have happened down there due to people speeding.
“I’ve seen quite a few flip onto their roof as they lost control. I’ve also had to pull a child out of the way of a car that was speeding and mounted the pavement by the catholic school.”
Steve Talbot: “Meir tunnel, 30mph limit and cars and wagons going 60plus.”
Amanda Redfern: “Mount Road Kidsgrove. There is a children’s park and playing fields as well as a GP surgery and pharmacy and the cars fly along there!”
Drew Painter: “More on the A500 please between Bradwell/Mcguiness car scrapyard roundabout towards Crewe M6 roundabout. Nutters driving erratically and too fast.”
