The Nottinghamshire Safety Camera Partnership, that began operating in April 2000, was one of the eight original pilot areas which initially operated solely within the city of Nottingham. The aim of the programme project was casualty reduction and was a key driver to meeting the Government's 2010 casualty reduction targets, based on the 1994-1998 average, which were:
A 40% reduction in the number of people killed or seriously injured
A 50% reduction in the number of children killed or seriously injured
A 10% reduction in the rate of slight casualties
The programme also aimed to educate drivers about the consequences of speeding and to improve compliance with speed limits and traffic signals.
The pilot projects were considered a success and April 2002 saw the national roll-out. Since then, the partnership has been operating in the whole of Nottinghamshire. Members now include: Nottinghamshire Police, Nottingham City Council, Nottinghamshire County Council, Highways England and Her Majesty's Court Services.
