- Devon & Cornwall Safety Camera Partnership — Speed Cameras
This get our award for the best official speed camera information site on the web, it includes maps and photos of all cameras. The pages were originally produced by Devon & Cornwall Police (not surprising as you wouldn't expect most speed camera partnerships to have this degree of competence or honesty!). If your local SCAMP is not publishing adequate information on the location of speed camera, tell them this is the standard they should be living up to.
The only way this could be improved upon would be to provide a detailed accident history for each site.
