New Labour: Speed cameras treble.

In 2001 there were 1,571 speed traps, but the most recent figures show this had risen to 4,309 by 2007.
The data, released by Transport minister Jim Fitzpatrick, revealed that London had the most cameras, with 439 fixed positions. There were 345 sites in Lancashire, 275 in the Thames Valley area and 247 operated by the Avon and Somerset force.

Britain tops the European league table for cameras, according to research by the speed camera alert system Wayfinder.

Speeding fines generate more than £102million a year for the state.

Tory transport spokesman Theresa Villiers said: 'It's alarming that Labour's reliance on speed cameras to police all forms of road safety has led to the number of camera sites trebling since 2001.
