TWO Bo'ness routes are being spotlighted next week in a bit to cut down on speed-related accidents.
From Monday, December 7, mobile cameras will be at:
A908 Devonside, Tillicoultry
M876 Torwood, Larbert
M9 at M876
A706 Linlithgow Road, Bo'ness
A993 Dean Rd, Bo'ness
A811 Stirling to Dumbarton Road
All cameras throughout the Central Scotland Police area may be moved due to operational priorities.
Central Scotland Safety Camera Partnership Manager, Neil MacSporran, said: "With fewer hours of daylight it's important that all drivers make sure that they use headlights when visibility is seriously reduced; generally when you cannot see for more than 100 metres. You can also use front or rear fog lights but you must switch them off when visibility improves. You should use dipped headlights at night in built up areas and in dull daytime weather to ensure that you can be seen.
"Some drivers think it is safe to drive faster at night. It is not. Casualty rates are much higher than during daylight hours due to higher speeds, higher alcohol consumption, tiredness and darkness".
All Central Scotland Safety Camera Partnership sites have a proven history of collisions and evidence of speeding vehicles.
