Speed cameras removed along Boston road as reward for good driving
ONE of Boston's major roads has seen its speed camera removed thanks to the good behaviour of drivers.
People using John Adam's Way will more than likely have noticed the absence of its speed cameras.
Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership (LRSP) spokesman John Siddle, said: "Speed cameras are placed at sites where death or serious injury has occurred and of the 21 incidents that have occurred in the last three years, two serious and 19 slight, none were speed related.
"The cameras on John Adams Way have not been active for a number of years because the average speed of vehicles on that road has been low and drivers have kept within the speed limit and observed the regulations."

Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership was formed in June 2000 in order to reduce the number of people killed and injured on Lincolnshire's roads.
In March 2006, Lincolnshire was one of only six authorities in the country to be selected as a Beacon Council for its work in promoting road safety and reducing the number of collisions on the county's roads.
Mr Siddle added: "We continued to monitor the average speed on that stretch of road and found drivers were not exceeding the limit so we made the decision to remove the cameras but we will continue to monitor the speed on John Adams Way.
"If the average speed increases we will have the option to re-install the cameras should we need to."
