Road safety to be welcomed

TODAY marks the beginning of one of the most promising road safety initiatives ever undertaken in this country: the deployment of speed camera vans at 760 locations.
Excessive speed is responsible for up to one-third of all road deaths, and the cameras could save as many as 50 lives a year.
Not only is the move welcome in itself, it is refreshing to see something done in the right way and for the right reasons.
