TRAFFIC fatalities in Moray and the rest of Scotland are down following the introduction of speed cameras, according to new statistics.
A report just published by the Scottish Government points to a declining trend in road deaths in areas where the cameras are located.
The numbers show that the number of people killed or seriously injured is down by 68%. Collisions that cause lesser injuries are also said to be down by 48%.
Graham Shanks, the manager of the North East Safety Camera Partnership, said: "These figures show that the highly visible deterrent effect of safety cameras continues to make a crucial contribution to improving driving behaviour.
"The report also highlights that four out of five people in Scotland support the use of safety cameras in helping to make our roads safer."
