Safety Cameras Scotland
Safety Cameras Scotland is the collective name for the North, East and West Safety Camera Units. We work together with the Scottish Safety Camera Programme and Police Scotland in operating speed and red-light cameras across Scotland. We are grant funded by the Scottish Government through the Scottish Safety Camera Programme and operate in accordance with the Programme Handbook. Safety cameras are there to make our roads safer, not to make money. The Safety Camera Units, Police Scotland and the Scottish Safety Camera Programme do not receive any revenue from speeding or red-light fines; all fines resulting from offences detected by safety cameras goes via the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service direct to the UK Government.
Every death and serious injury on the roads is one too many. Through targeted camera enforcement and improving driver behaviour, our aim is to contribute to Scotland’s road safety vision and road safety targets by encouraging road users to think about their speed and to deter people from going over the speed limit or running a red-light.
On this website you will find the locations of our cameras, information about us, and guidance on what to do if you have received correspondence regarding a speeding or red-light offence.
