The new approach is being taken by the Essex Casualty Reduction Board (ECRB). Motorists will now find the county's six mobile safety cameras, more police patrols and extra bridge-based cameras on busy trunk roads such as the A120 and the A12.
Chief Inspector Tom Diment, Essex Police's head of road policing, said that officers would now be in a position to move cameras on a more regular basis and combine clear and covert operations to help cut speeding.
He said: “We can be more dynamic and in a position to move the mobile cameras to the areas where we are identifying as KSI sites. They could be moved daily or weekly. The vehicles we're using are bigger and more high-profile to affect driver behaviour to reduce KSIs.”
A combination of activities makes up the scheme as well as cameras, including a poster and leaflet campaign to target groups such as young drivers and motorcyclists and problems such as drink and drug driving as well as speeding.
