Following on from the "pace car" thread I thought I would post to say how great I think the new average speed cameras on the A77 are.

My folks have recently bought a caravan down near Stranraer and these cameras cover most of the road down (till Girvan). The A77 has always been a dangerous road but with these cameras in place - what a difference. Nobody fighting to get past each other and everyone just sitting at 60/70mph making steady progress.
I think these are a great idea (much more so than the traditional speed cameras) and I would welcome them on all roads. I'm sure they will prove to be a great success with crashes, injurys and fatalities reduced vastly and it can only mean they will be popping up around the country.
I'm sure lots of people will hate them, but I have no problem with sitting at the speed limit, even more so when everyone else is too - makes for a very relaxed and safe journey.
What do you reckon?
