Speeders to view offence online

Web users will have immediate access to photographs from speed cameras
Speeding drivers in Wiltshire will soon be able to see evidence of their offence on a new website.

The county's Safety Camera Partnership has commissioned a software company to develop the system.

Drivers will be able to see photographs from speed cameras and get accident statistics.

The aim is to help motorists understand why they are being punished. Offenders will receive a PIN number with their penalty notice to access the site.

The county's drivers will be the first in the UK to have immediate access via the internet to information and pictures from speed cameras.

It will also give them information and statistics about crashes and fatalities that have occurred on the roads where speed cameras are placed.

The Wiltshire and Swindon Safety Camera Partnership has commissioned the system from a software company called Compuware Ltd.

The Partnership says that once motorists can see the statistics and understand how many crashes occur on each road, they might be more willing to slow down and create a safer driving environment.
