Speed camera detectors are to be banned in a surprise move announced by ministers today.
The devices, which alert drivers when they approach speed traps, will become illegal within a year under tough measures in the new Road Safety Bill.
Safety campaigners hailed the announcement on camera detectorsas an important move against speeding drivers who rely on the devices to protect them from fines and penalty points on their licence.
