Young motorists most supportive of safety cameras

Monday 17th August 2009

Young people have a more positive attitude to safety cameras than older drivers, according to a survey by the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists).

The results show that 17 to 24 year-olds give the best approval ratings overall while older drivers tend to be the least supportive, with drivers over 45 giving the lowest approval ratings.

Neil Greig, director of research and policy at the IAM, said: “Young people don’t tend to drive as frequently or as far as the average driver, and they have also grown up in a surveillance society, which could explain why they show less objection to safety cameras – older people are more likely to resent being monitored in this way.”
