Information on Portsmouth and Hampshire’s speed cameras will be published for the first time next month.

Details about the number of accidents, casualties and prosecutions will be published.

Figures which show if more crashes took place before or after cameras were installed will be available on the internet, as well as data showing how many drivers were taken to court, sent on a speed awareness course or given a fine after being caught speeding.

Road Safety minister Mike Penning said: ‘We want to improve accountability and make sure that the public are able to make informed judgments about the decisions made on their behalf..’

The Department for Transport will provide links to localised websites where the information will be published from July 20.

Portsmouth’s speed cameras have been turned off for three months, since the city council pulled out of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Road Safety Partnership earlier this year.
