On 11 April 2013, North Yorkshire Police introduced three mobile speed cameras following a 20-month pilot scheme. The pilot was introduced 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.
