Safety Camera Unit
Safety Cameras Scotland is the collective name for the three Safety Camera Units that operate across Scotland - North, East and West - who manage the administration for speed and red-light cameras. The units operate within Police Scotland funded via a grant from the Scottish Safety Camera Programme.
Safety Cameras Scotland aims to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured as a result of speeding through targeted camera enforcement and improving driver behaviour.
They do this through a variety of safety cameras which detect speeding vehicles and non-compliance with red-lights. All cameras are Home Office Type approved and calibrated on a regular basis.
These enforcement cameras are located in areas most in need in terms of road casualty reduction, and deployed primarily where they will have the greatest casualty and collision reduction potential. All locations are clearly signed and can be found on the Safety Cameras Scotland website, along with information on the annual site selection process.
Safety Cameras Scotland operates under the rules and guidelines of the Scottish Safety Camera Programme.
This is an evidence-based personal injury crash/casualty reduction initiative. Safety cameras are funded by an annual grant from the Scottish Government and receive no revenue from offences.
