Fire-damaged speed camera to be replaced next week


The fire-damaged speed camera at Halland is set to be replaced by the end of next week.

Sussex Police put out an appeal for witnesses after arsonists targeted the camera, on the A22 Eastbourne Road, on Sunday night (October 25).

Mark Trimmer, Sussex Safer Roads Partnership operations manager, said: “We believe that speed cameras are an important part of the work undertaken by local agencies to help reduce casualties on our roads.

“They are placed where appropriate in response to collisions where people are injured and excess speed is reported as a factor.

“Information about speed cameras, their locations and the data leading to their installation can be accessed at

“Unfortunately, some individuals believe that driving at whatever speed they like and where they like is acceptable and in that sense have no regard for their own safety of the safety of others.

“It is proposed to have the camera replaced by the end of next week.”
