Average Speed Cameras in Poynters Rd. A mini cab driver has called to say he has been issued with a notice supported by automatic cameras on 27/9/2015 for driving in excess of 30mph travelling towards Houghton Regis on Poynters Road. This afternoon a senior figure at CBC, Highways, confirmed to HRND that the signs are all in place and enforcement has begun.

The speed cameras that have been installed on Poynters Road are digital average speed cameras and will measure the overall speed of motorist’s travelling the length of Poynters Road. They will also measure the speeds of motorist’s joining from Leagrave High Street on to Poynters Road.
The cameras are to enforce the 30mph limit and anyone found travelling at an average of 35mph or above over the length of the road will be liable to prosecution by the Police. The cameras are set to enforce the 30mph limit and not designed to monitor speeds lower than the posted speed limit.
Advice from Central Beds Council: "The signs will be installed soon as per regulations and the law. Enforcement cannot take place without the regulatory signs. The cameras go through a phase of testing and calibration via the Home Office process and back to the Police control centre in Stevenage. Once this is complete and the cameras are certified and signs in place, enforcement will commence."
