A SPEED camera in Studley has been named as one of the busiest in the country.
The A435 Alcester Road North West camera snapped 6,414 motorists breaking the 30mph speed limit last year. The number of drivers being caught out by the camera has also increased in the last year by almost 30 per cent from 4,976 in 2012.
It makes it the sixth busiest speed camera in the country according to figures obtained by LV= insurance firm but Warwickshire Police were unable to say how much money had been generated through fines.
John O'Roarke, managing director of LV= car insurance, said: “It can be easy for motorists to become complacent when they get behind the wheel, especially when they drive on the same roads day in and day out. However, it's important that drivers always concentrate on the road so they can spot any new road signs, changes in speed limits, and are aware of what other motorists are doing."
