Police Scotland ‘will not prioritise enforcing 20 mph laws’

Chief Superintendent Stewart Carle, divisional commander of Police Scotland’s road policing division, said safety camera units were not “calibrated” for 20mph, and so would not be deployed in those areas.

He said officers would continue to focus “finite resources” on roads with faster speeds, where the majority of casualties occur.

It came as MSPs continue to take evidence on the Restricted Roads (20mph speed limit) (Scotland) Bill, which would make 20mph speed limits standard in urban areas.
