Average speed cameras

Average speed camera traffic sign

There are currently several routes across the West Midlands operated by average speed enforcement camera systems. This is intended to positively influence driver behaviour and ensure that motorists comply with the set limits on roads, resulting in a safer environment for all road users. Average speed check signage is used to inform drivers that they are entering an average speed control zone.

There are currently two types of average speed enforcement cameras in use across the West Midlands Police area.

The Siemens TASCAR (Temporary Average Speed Camera at Roadworks) SafeZone average speed enforcement solution is currently utilised on the M6 between Junctions 5 & 4 Southbound and 4 & 5 Northbound.

The Jenoptik SPECS (Speed Check Services) cameras are currently utilised on various roads and the routes can be found here

For more information on how these cameras work please visit the SafeZone page or the SPECS page.

There are currently a number of other routes under consideration with the aim of implementing average speed cameras in the foreseeable future.
