Dave Brown, said: “This is a chance for members of the public to ask questions and find out anything they want to know about the cameras, how they are operated, why we use them and what happens once you’ve been caught speeding.”

On 11 April 2013, North Yorkshire Police introduced three mobile safety cameras following a 20-month pilot scheme. The pilot was introduced, say the police on specific roads to help address the problem of motorcyclist fatalities, killed and seriously injured collisions and other routes where it had been found that speeding was a problem in local neighbourhoods.
During the pilot, more than 26,000 motorists were caught speeding, including a minority driving or riding at extremely dangerous speeds and performing dangerous manoeuvres, say North Yorkshire Police.
