SPEED cameras on a motorway roadworks section cost drivers £2million in fines in just 21 الشهور.
تقريبيا 20,000 motorists were caught on the M23 between Gatwick Airport and the M25.
It was one of ten temporary camera sites that snared 100,000 speeding drivers across the UK.
With fines often costing £100, they yielded a possible traffic fine income of more than £10million.
In Cambridgeshire, 12,359 drivers were caught in four months in roadworks on the A14 near Huntingdon.
أكثر من 11,000 speeders were nicked on the M6 in Warwickshire, Freedom of Information figures show.
And in West Mercia, penalty notices were sent in six months to nearly 7,000 drivers for speeding on the M5.
Hugh Bladon, of the Alliance of British Drivers, قالت: “If there are people working on the road, I think it’s fair enough drivers reduce their speed to help improve safety.
