The Arrive Alive partnership in North Wales is no longer publishing details of roads where mobile safety cameras will be deployed on a weekly basis.
Arrive Alive says changes to guidelines enable it to target any roads where it believes speeding is a problem, rather than being restricted to sites where a minimum quota of accidents and deaths have occurred.
Inspector Essi Ahari said: “We’re not going to be telling people where we are going to be any more. We don’t need to. It will be anywhere anytime, day or night.
“In the past we had to wait for people to die or get seriously injured before we put up the cameras. It was reactive. Putting cameras where they are needed will be proactive.”
RoadPeace, a charity for road accident victims and their relatives, said it hoped others would follow. Founder and president Brigitte Chaudhry said other partnerships should do the same.
“Whenever I speak to colleagues in Europe about cameras having to be painted bright yellow and the four crashes involving death or serious injuries before a camera is allowed, they wouldn’t believe me,” she said. “They thought it was completely illogical.”
