The Scottish Safety Camera Programme aims to reduce the number of casualties on Scotland’s roads and engender a culture of speed limit and red traffic signal compliance by providing a visible and effective deterrent.
Road traffic deaths in Scotland are at their lowest levels since records began, and safety cameras play a crucial role in speed enforcement.
The Programme is delivered by local partnerships. Key stakeholders in these partnerships include Local Authorities, Police Scotland, Transport Scotland, the Scottish Courts Service, local NHS Boards, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and the Scottish Ambulance Service.

The Scottish Safety Camera Programme handbook provides rules, guidance and processes for the Programme in Scotland.
A Review of the Scottish Safety Camera Programme is currently taking place, concerned with the delivery and outcomes of the Programme.
As part of the Review, a consultation has been undertaken seeking views on the purpose, structure, and governance of safety camera partnerships.
This consultation is now closed.
The consultation document and a copy of the stakeholder letter, all non-confidential responses to the consultation and a summary of responses are available online.
Safety cameras are an integral element of our Road Safety Framework to 2020, and are recognised as an effective means of reducing accidents.
The principle of safety camera enforcement on Scotland’s roads, as part of our Road Safety Framework, is not part of this Review.
